Small Business Energy Solutions
Small businesses know better than most that a dollar saved is a dollar earned. Taking some simple steps to increase your business’s energy efficiency is an easy way to boost your bottom line—and achieve other benefits including improved comfort in your space.
How We Can Help
Small businesses and small nonprofit organizations can receive a complimentary on-site analysis of your energy use and easy-to-follow recommendations on ways to save.
You can take advantage of incentives that cover up to 70% of the cost of qualifying upgrades to lighting and refrigeration controls. Plus, you can choose to spread your 30% of the cost over 12 monthly payments through a no-interest BGE Small Business Energy Advance, so you’ll see a fast return on your investment. Our prequalified contractors make installation fast and easy.
