Direct Discount Program

Take advantage of custom project rebates of $0.14/kWh

Custom projects including advanced lighting controls, compressed air, VFDs and more are now eligible for rebates of $0.14/kWh, saved annually, covering up to 80 percent of the project cost. Combined heat and power (CHP) and solar projects are currently NOT eligible through the Direct Discount Program, nor are GNE accounts. Pre-approval is required for all custom projects, and the process is the same as the current Direct Discount Program, with a few additions:

  • Projects must have an estimation of savings submitted.
  • Project eligibility must be confirmed by coordinated calls with our engineering team.
  • Projects must pass TRC (Total Resource Cost) screen.
  • Custom Tab in the DD Assessment Tool must be completed.

New assessment tool available – Please make sure that you’re using the new version of the Assessment Tool v4.4, now with a custom project tab and printable report.

Contractor Training – If you’re new to the Direct Discount Program, need a refresher or want to submit custom projects, register for our next contractor training on June 19, 2019 at 4 p.m. EST.
