Commercial, industrial, and agricultural buildings often have special requirements that require unique approaches to capture energy savings. Our custom programs can address these distinct needs by utilizing the latest building science data, tools, and energy engineers to deliver results and maximize incentive goals.
Deliver Incentives That Work
Simplified Cost-Effectiveness Screening
PSD’s simplified approach to commercial custom programs enables trade allies and customers to make the best decisions for their energy usage and bottom line. By utilizing streamlined tools designed specifically to meet the programs cost-effective testing requirements, PSD’s approach turns the often-frustrating custom program process into a breeze.
What makes a project cost-effective? A project is cost-effective when every dollar spent on energy efficiency upgrades, returns more than one dollar, over the lifetime of the upgrade.
If an insulation project costs $17,000 and saves $21,000 over the 40-year lifetime of the insulation, the project would be cost-effective. If this same project cost $24,000, it would not be considered cost-effective.
