LED Lighting Retrofits

BWP will pay $0.10 per kilowatt-hour saved over a one year period for LED lighting retrofits. In order to qualify for a rebate, your LED lighting must meet specific guidelines.

Other Lighting Retrofits

For all other lighting retrofits, the rebate is $0.05 per kilowatt-hour saved over a one year period.

Exit Signs

BWP offers rebates when replacing incandescent or fluorescent exit signs with LED or Photo-Luminescent exit signs. The rebate is $20 per fixture when meeting specific criteria.


Heating, Ventilation, & Air Conditioning (HVAC) Retrofits

BWP will provide a three-tier sliding scale for rebates based on the efficiency rating of the HVAC unit purchased. The higher the SEER or EER efficiency rating, the greater the rebate. Qualifying air conditioning units are evaluated based on AHRI product certification ratings. For more information, please visit the AHRI website.

Heat Pump Retrofits

A heat pump is essentially an air conditioner modified to allow it to operate as a heater. BWP provides a three-tier rebate system for heat pumps. Qualifying units are evaluated based on the AHRI product certification ratings.


Chiller Retrofits

BWP will pay $0.05 per kilowatt-hour saved over a one year period for customers who retire their inefficient chiller equipment and install a new unit that exceeds Title 24 requirements. If replacing equipment that is no longer operational, rebates will be determined based on energy-savings exceeding Title 24 requirements.

Motor Replacements

BWP will provide incentives for premium efficiency motors as determined by the standards established by the U. S. Department of Energy’s Federal Energy Management Program.


New Construction & Major Tenant Renovation

BWP offers rebates for new construction and major tenant renovation to encourage energy saving designs. In addition to the standard documentation required for a rebate, additional guidelines will also apply.


Power Factor Correction

BWP offers a power factor correction rebate of 25% of the equipment cost. There are certain terms and conditions that must be followed in order to receive a rebate.


Thermal Energy Storage

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) systems make ice during off-peak hours and use the stored thermal energy during peak demand hours to provide cooling. The incentive is $800 per kilowatt of demand saved.


PC Network Power Management Software

This software allows system administrators to place computers into sleep mode and shut down any open files (after first saving them) when appropriate. An independent study determined average annual savings of 200 kWh per PC. BWP will pay $0.05 per kilowatt-hour saved over a one year period.

Miscellaneous Energy-Saving Retrofits

Most business retrofit projects will fall into the categories listed above. For projects that meet BWP's Business Rebate criteria but don’t fall neatly into one of the categories, BWP will pay $0.05 per kilowatt-hour saved over a one year period.
