Rhode Island Energy (Electric) - Small Business Energy Efficiency Program

April 28, 2023


Rhode Island Energy's Small/Mid-Sized Business Program is for business customers with an average demand of 200 kilowatts or less per month. The program aids qualifying business customers in installing energy efficient equipment. Rhode Island Energy provides a free energy audit and report of recommended energy efficiency improvements. If the business customer chooses to make the recommended improvements using National Grid’s vendor and equipment, Rhode Island Energy will pay 70% of the cost of the installation of energy efficient equipment.  Customers can register online at the web site listed above for a free energy audit.

Commercial and industrial customers who are interested in energy efficiency but who do not qualify for the Small/Mid-Sized Business program, may still qualify for other rebate programs offered by Rhode Island Energy. Contact Rhode Island Energy for additional information.
