  2. Select an approved contractor from our list or have yours apply to participate.
  3. The contractor visits your business and recommends energy-saving upgrades. They’ll also tell you how much it will cost and how much Con Edison will cover. You decide if and when the work gets done.

How Efficiency Upgrades Help You Save Energy and Money*

  • Lighting While a standard bulb cost $7 a year to power, LED bulbs will run you just $1. LEDs also last up to 15 years, helping you save on replacement and maintenance costs.
  • Refrigeration By retrofitting your old refrigerators and freezers, or replacing them with more efficient models, you can save big on your monthly energy bill.
  • Heating, Ventilation, and Cooling (HVAC) and Hot Water Heating and cooling accounts for a significant portion of a building’s energy use—typically about a quarter. Domestic hot water heating also uses considerable energy. Upgrading and insulating your equipment can help you bring down your energy bills effortlessly.
  • Building Envelope The exterior of your building—the outer walls, windows, ceiling, and floor—is called the “envelope.” You can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs—or up to 10% on your total annual energy bill—with proper insulation and sealing.
  • Energy Management Systems Easily save up to 20% on your energy bills with energy controls that automatically regulate your business’s heating, cooling, lighting, and more.
