Most buildings waste around a third of the energy they use. Installing energy-efficient technologies on existing equipment and upgrading to high-efficiency machinery can dramatically reduce energy costs while also improving occupant comfort and boosting operations.

Pennsylvania offers commercial equipment incentives from PECO, here’s a look at what’s available across the state.

Equipment Incentives from PECO

PECO incentives cover HVAC, Lighting, Motors, Drives, and Refrigeration Equipment.

PECO HVAC Incentives

Inefficient HVAC systems often result in higher-than-average energy bills. You may also encounter spaces in the building that are too hot or cold, regardless of the temperature of the thermostat setting. Your building’s HVAC system can account for around 30% of the energy used which is why it makes sense to upgrade to a high-efficiency heat, cooling, and ventilation system.

PECO offers financial incentives that will help reduce your building’s overall energy usage and costs.

PECO Motors and Drivers Incentives

Commercial and industrial equipment frequently rely on motors and drivers to keep the machinery operating for extended periods. Motors and drivers often use a lot of electricity, causing energy bills to climb. Retrofitting the equipment with energy-efficient motors and variable-speed drivers will help reduce energy costs and wear and tear on the machinery.
