Eversource - Commercial New Construction Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

February 17, 2023


Eversource (formerly Public Service of New Hampshire), in collaboration with NHSaves, encourages commercial and industrial customers building new facilities or renovating existing facilities to conserve energy through the New Equipment and Construction Program. The program offers prescriptive and custom rebates for a variety of equipment, including lighting systems, electric motors, variable frequency drives, air conditioners, heat pumps, HVAC controls, chillers, and air compressors. These prescriptive rebates vary widely depending on the equipment type and the size. Each equipment type has stated efficiency levels which must be met in order to qualify. Interested customers should visit the program website for a full listing of rebate amounts and program requirements. Pre-approval of rebates by Eversource is required prior to the purchase and installation of the energy efficient equipment.

Custom incentives allow for facility-specific efficiency improvements not available through the prescriptive offerings. Eligible retrofit projects may qualify for a rebate equal to the lesser of 75% of the total cost or buy down to one-year pay-back. Contact Eversource or view the program website for more information on these incentives.
