PSEG Long Island offers a variety of incentives for its non-residential customers to increase the energy efficiency of facilities through the Commercial Efficiency Program. Major renovations of existing buildings and new construction projects are both eligible for this program, with new construction incentives being slightly reduced compared to existing building incentives. 

There are several paths to choose from in the program, each one designed to fit the needs of a particular customer.

  • The Prescriptive Approach offers rebates on a pre-qualified list of energy-efficient equipment including lighting, compressed air, kitchen equipment, variable frequency drives, and HVAC equipment.
  •  The Custom Approach provides funding for more complex energy-saving measures, perhaps measures unique to the building or business, which are not covered under the prescriptive approach.

Energy Assessment program provides free services for facilities to assess their energy demands and analyze energy conservation measures. Based on the size of the facility the assessment will include 1-2 hour walkthrough of a facility and will provide recommendations any efficiency upgrades, and provide calculations for rebates and paybacks.
