What is wattsmart Small Business Direct and how does it work?

Rocky Mountain Power has developed an enhanced offer to help eligible small business customers in selected areas, save energy, money and time when upgrading existing lighting and non-lighting systems.

The offer covers some of the most common interior and exterior lighting upgrades, such as replacement of screw-in incandescent, CFL lamps, wall packs, T8, and T12 fluorescent lamps, with LED lighting technologies. The offer will provide enrolled customers with turn-key energy services, including an energy assessment, project retrofit options and costs, scheduling and retrofit project installation and management.

Rocky Mountain Power will provide a list of eligible locations within its service territory where customers may enroll in wattsmart Small Business Direct for a limited time. Only customers in the designated participation areas are eligible to participate. Those not in the selected areas may sign up to be informed of future small business offers.

This offer is designed to provide Utah small business customers on schedules 6, 6A, 6B, and 23 with a monthly demand of less than 200 kW a month in the past 12 months with an enhanced incentive offer and the installation of energy-efficient equipment in their facilities. To promote cost-effective delivery to this market sector, the program will offer targeted services to selected communities for a limited duration of time. The majority of this offer’s activity will be focused on rural communities with a population base of less than 20,000.

With 75% of the projects cost covered by available incentive, customers will have a co-pay of 25% for a maximum simple payback of less 18 months.
