Energy Efficiency Incentives for Industrial Facilities

Appalachian Power's Commercial and Industrial Program helps you manage the cost of energy saving upgrades so you can reduce energy use and lower your energy bills. Incentives ranging from $0.04 to $0.12 per kWh saved are available for interior and exterior lighting, HVAC systems, food service equipment and more.

Power rotating equipment for less

If your rotating equipment isn't fitted with variable frequency drives (VFDs), you're missing out on a big opportunity to save energy. Appalachian Power's program provides incentives for installing energy-saving VFDs on the motors that drive your heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). Incentives are also available for installing motors that drive your cooling tower fans, chilled or condenser water pumps, hot water pumps and air compressors.

Reduce costs year round

Inefficient HVAC or chilled water systems can impact the comfort of your building as well as your energy costs. Our program can help you improve these systems by offsetting the cost of installing economizers, high-efficiency chillers, heat pumps, air conditioning units and ventilation systems (including demand-controlled systems). We can also help you conduct refrigerant charge corrections that can have a big impact on the efficiency of your HVAC units.

Save with lighting technology controls

Today's lighting technologies can help you reduce energy costs, improve workplace safety and provide a more comfortable environment for your employees. With our lighting upgrade incentives, you can take advantage of the latest lighting sensors and timers, dimmable lighting controls, or efficient, low-maintenance lighting fixtures such as T8 and T5 fluorescent lights, light-emitting diode bulbs (LEDs), ceramic metal halide lamps and induction lighting.

Get creative

Don't limit your imagination. If you have an idea for a project that will reduce energy consumption in your facility, but it doesn't fall into the categories described above (i.e. compressed air system upgrades), you may still be eligible for incentives under custom projects. Contact us and we'll help you determine whether your project qualifies.

How will I benefit from an upgrade?

  • Cash incentives reduce upfront costs: Incentives of up to $0.12 per kWh help with upfront costs of purchasing and installing energy-efficient equipment.
  • Lower electric bills through reduced electric use: Upgrading equipment and appliances to high efficiency reduces electric use, and thus your electric bills.
  • You'll improve your working environment: Increasing occupants' comfort and safety with newer high efficiency systems can lead to better productivity.
