Starting on August 16th, utility rebate information for products specific to commercial and industrial buildings will be available on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® website through a new partnership with UtilityGenius, North America’s leading place for commercial and industrial rebate research. The partnership will bring UtilityGenius’s full search functionality to ENERGY STAR’s website, making it easy for commercial and industrial users to find the utility rebate information they need in one place.
“Rebates for efficient commercial equipment can help building owners and managers make deeper investments in energy efficiency,” said Cindy Jacobs, chief of the ENERGY STAR Program for Commercial Buildings and Industrial Plants. “By making their UtilityGenius commercial and industrial rebate finder tool available on the ENERGY STAR website, Encentiv Energy makes it easier for owners and managers to find these rebates and save energy, save money, and protect the environment.”
UtilityGenius, powered by Encentiv Energy, simplifies the rebate journey. A database with up-to-date commercial and industrial rebate information for the 3,000+ utilities in the United States and Canada allows users to search by zip code, state, or utility name quickly and easily. Rebate estimates are tracked for a variety of technologies, including lighting, HVAC, building controls, electric vehicles, and more. Users can also research rebate-eligible products within the platform to ensure that they don’t miss out on potential rebates.
“The major barriers to upgrading buildings with more efficient products are affordability and lack of awareness,” said Steve Moritz, president and CEO of Encentiv Energy. "This partnership will allow us to reach more people with information about rebates, help them find the most energy efficient technology available, and where eligible products can be purchased. By making the journey as simple as possible, we’re enabling people to choose more efficient alternatives for their projects.”
The widget can be found in the “Finance Energy Efficiency Projects” section of the ENERGY STAR website.
