Business custom rebates

Business custom rebates

We can help boost your business success by reducing your up-front investment for efficiency upgrades and your ongoing operating costs.

We will work with your business to determine equipment eligibility, measurement and verification processes and potential rebate amounts prior to the beginning of the project. Once the project is complete, the verified demand and energy/water savings from qualifying equipment will determine the final amount of the rebate.

Some custom rebates have resulted in reducing the payback period for more efficient options by more than a year. So, if you’re considering improvements to your facility or manufacturing process, be sure to make our custom rebate part of your plans.

Eligibility requirements:
  • Rebates are available to active Colorado Springs Utilities commercial and industrial customers.
  • Purchase and installation of qualifying measures must be in our service territory.
  • Customer pre-approval prior to purchasing equipment is required for all custom rebates.
  • Must be willing to provide reasonable access to project facilities for independent verification of reported measure installation and/or realized savings.
