Eversource Enhances Small Business Energy Efficiency Program


In an effort to help small business owners reduce their energy costs and impact on the environment during this difficult time, Eversource is now offering no-cost virtual energy assessments and enhanced incentives of 100 percent of the cost of common energy saving measures for small businesses.  

Small retailers, professional offices, manufacturers, restaurants, independent grocers or any small business in Eversource service territory using 300 kW or less each year can call 1-844-887-1400 to learn more and request a virtual assessment. An energy expert will guide the customer through the assessment via a phone or video call and answer questions about energy-efficient equipment upgrades and improvements. The customer will receive a report outlining proposed energy saving measures, and any energy saving products they can install themselves will be mailed to them. The installation of any additional measures that require a technician to enter the business will be scheduled for a later date.  

Upgrades eligible for the enhanced incentives include faucet aerators, spray valves, showerheads, pipe insulation, building envelope insulation/weatherization, HVAC air duct sealing, LED lamps and fixtures, lighting controls, Wi-Fi and programmable thermostats, variable speed drives as well as HVAC, plug load, refrigeration and vending machine controls.  

The enhanced approach will be available through August 31, 2020 or while funding lasts.
