Important Program Changes! Effective July 1, 2020 the C&I energy efficiency programs have been enhanced. The changes include increased Lighting and Non-Lighting Incentives, larger pre-approval thresholds and more. The C&I Program Change flyer outlines the changes.
Get Rebates for Energy-saving Projects Specific to Your Company
I&M’s custom incentives make it easy for you to save energy and improve your bottom line through energy-saving projects specific to your company. Building owners, designers and architects can now go above and beyond the current state building code requirements while spending less.
Continue the savings with helpful energy tips like making sure to plug leaks around windows, doors and outlets with weather-stripping caulk.
In 2019, our business customers saved over 45 million kWh with custom projects. That’s equal to the emissions reduced by taking 364 cars off the road for a year! Our Custom business customers were paid over $2.5 million in rebates in 2019.*
