Refrigeration (Anti-Condensate) Program

The Refrigeration Anti-Condensate program is designed to help you reduce electric strip heater usage in refrigeration equipment. You can earn a rebate based on $0.35 per linear foot of anti-condensate heat strip control. New construction projects do not qualify for this rebate.

How the program works

Any commercial and industrial customer that meets the company's requirements for participation is eligible. The program applies to customers who are retrofitting or replacing existing refrigeration equipment or installing new refrigeration equipment. Refrigeration controls and equipment must be designed and operated to reduce Tampa Electric's peak system demand.

You provide Tampa Electric with your equipment specification information, and Tampa Electric will use an electric strip kilowatt (kW) display to verify peak demand reduction.
