Pay for Performance Program

July 14, 2015


The New Hampshire Pay for Performance (P4P) program works with large energy consumers to improve energy efficiency in their facilities. This program is available to commercial, industrial, and municipal facilities with an electrical demand of at least 100 kilowatts (during any of the previous 12 months) and/or that consume at least 1,000 MMBTU annually for space or process heating. It is also available to schools, universities, hospitals and other institutional facilities.

This program is executed through a network of qualified partners who help plan and develop comprehensive energy-efficiency projects, oversee installation, and verify that the installation will achieve estimated energy performance. P4P incentives are awarded upon the satisfactory completion of two or three program milestones, depending on the facility and improvement plans. See the program web site for details on incentive structures for different types of eligible facilities.

This program is funded through proceeds from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).
