Custom Rebate Program

Columbia Water & Light’s custom incentive program looks at the overall load reduction of a total project and requires a minimum of 30% increase in total energy efficiency. The amount of the rebate is $300 per kW reduced, up to 50% of the project cost. Projects must have a minimum reduction of 1 kW and rebates will be offered up to a maximum of 75 kW of load reduction for a maximum rebate of $22,500. The custom-based incentive allows for the engineering team or design and contractor team to bring their best approaches forward for superior building or equipment performance. To participate, projects should be:

  • Commercial, industrial or multifamily buildings
  • Major renovation or replacement of equipment
  • In the project pre-planning phase
  • Manufacturing company expansion accompanied by retrofits of existing equipment are eligible

CW&L staff will serve as the resource to provide technical assistance to establish project parameters and evaluate team submittals. Projects must be completed within a 12 month period. Funds are available on a first come, first served basis. Funding is subject to change at any time due to budget allocations.
