C/I Performance Program

The C/I Performance Program provides performance-based incentives to ESCOs and other contractors to promote EE capital improvement projects. This is a resource acquisition program, although some market transformation is secondary namely, to support the development of the energy services industry. The program offers incentive payments to ESCOs or contractors that develop projects delivering verifiable annual electric energy savings (reduction in electric consumption or summer peak demand savings). Eligible measures include lighting, motors, variable-speed drives, energy management systems, certain process equipment, packaged air conditioning and chillers, and custom measures that result in electric-energy savings or demand reductions which can be measured and verified. Cost-effective renewable energy measures and measures that reduce summer peak demand are also eligible for funding.
