This rebate program is available to all Tampa Electric commercial and industrial customers. It is designed to recognize and encourage investments by customers in new or existing peak-demand shifting/reduction energy conservation measures or technologies. Both new and existing construction projects qualify for this rebate.
Many energy conservation measures and technologies are already covered by separate stand-alone Tampa Electric commercial and industrial rebate programs. If the energy conservation measure or technology is already covered by one of Tampa Electric's other rebate programs, the measure or technology cannot be funded by this program.
A maximum rebate up to $200 per kilowatt (kW) reduction will be paid based on the peak-demand savings during the defined peak periods of 5 p.m. in Aug. and 7 a.m. in Jan., Monday through Friday. The peak-demand savings is compared concurrently with utility peak to determine the total kW reduction eligible for the rebate.
No, the peak-demand shifting/reduction energy conservation measure or technology does not need to save energy.
Yes, this is a demand-side management program which means the customer's demand load needs to be reduced concurrently with the utility peak, typically shifted to off-peak hours or reduced.
To qualify, customers must submit a Conservation Value rebate application and a Demand and Energy Calculations form to Tampa Electric during the preliminary engineering analysis. Tampa Electric will review and analyze the application and will notify the customer if the peak-demand reduction energy conservation measure or technology qualifies for the rebate by issuing a pre-qualification certificate.
Energy conservation measures or technologies that have a payback of less than two years will not qualify and NO rebates will be approved. An important note – if any equipment to support the demand reduction energy conservation measure is purchased prior to the date the pre-qualification certificate was issued, no rebate will be paid.
Renewable energy sources, refrigeration measures and other demand energy conservation measures or technologies not covered by other Tampa Electric-approved conservation programs.
This would include energy conservation measures potentially in conflict with environmental regulations (CFCs, water conservation, indoor air quality), on site generation, emergency generation and cogeneration. Other technologies that would not qualify include conventional cooling equipment, water heating, lighting, occupancy sensors, motors, energy recovery ventilation.
Additionally, equipment to which customers have made operational (behavioral) modifications is ineligible. If a measure qualifies for two rebates (Tampa Electric and another utility company), Tampa Electric will not pay a rebate so that a double payment is avoided. Energy conservation measures or technologies that have a payback of less than two years will not qualify.
