Alameda Municipal Power - Commercial New Construction Rebate Program

July 01, 2022


Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) encourages all new construction to exceed California Title 24 Building Energy Efficiency Standards. As a result, they offer the following grant and rebate programs to AMP customers. Projects will only be funded if AMP receives and approves the application and performs a pre-installation inspection before work begins. A post-installation inspection must also be completed by AMP before the customer receives reimbursement.

Design Assistance Grants
Grants are available for design assistance which includes analysis, building modeling, and research. Owner incentives are up to $10,000 per project.

Whole Building Approach
Rebates are available for proposed buildings that exceed Title 24 by at least 10%. The analysis can be conducted by an energy consultant or the design team itself. Analysis must be completed using a comprehensive energy simulation tool that can model Title 24 requirements.

Building Systems Approach
Rebates are available for individual systems within a building, including HVAC and lighting.
