Increase the energy efficiency of your equipment, save on maintenance and operating costs, and improve your indoor air quality by installing a facility energy management system (EMS) that controls all or a part of your building’s electrical load. Both new and existing construction projects qualify for this rebate.

How the program works

Tampa Electric provides a rebate of up to 50 percent of the project cost, with a maximum of $25,000, when you install an energy management system (“EMS”) at your facility. The EMS must consist of a central operator’s station that includes a central processing unit and is capable of monitoring all sensors and field devices in real time. The station must be accessible by a local or remote computer with a monitor.

Please note significant EMS software changes are eligible, but updates for a new version being released or an annual license are not eligible. Software updates are evaluated by a Tampa Electric Analyst for approval.

Pre-approval is required

Before work begins, please submit the following information to Tampa Electric using the Facility Energy Management System program rebate application . After you submit the application, you will receive an enrollment/confirmation number that you can use to access your application. Be sure to write down and save the enrollment/confirmation number.

  • Tampa Electric customer account number
  • Contractor license number
  • Contractor license number expiration date

The application will prompt you to upload the following information:

  • Specification sheets

Acquiring your rebate

Once work is complete, you must submit a paid receipt/invoice (proof of purchase) to Tampa Electric. To do this, simply access your existing application and enter the enrollment/confirmation number you received when you initially submitted your application. Please allow four weeks for processing.
