UniSource Energy Services (UES) offers the Commercial Energy Solutions Program for non-residential electric customers to upgrade existing equipment with more energy efficient measures. Rebates are available for energy efficient retrofits on lighting, refrigeration, controls and HVAC equipment. This program is contractor based, which means that approved contractors will provide installation services and apply for the rebates on the customer's behalf. The amount of the rebate varies depending on the equipment size and efficiency; specifications are listed on the program web site. To receive the program rebate, customers must first undergo a facility survey that is conducted and presented to the customer. A pre-installation inspection may or may not be required prior to beginning the project. Following installation, customers must submit a project completion form and after a post-installation inspection, a final payment notification form is sent to the participating customer and the service provider.
