  ENERGY EFFICIENCY INCENTIVES  

 
Energy Efficiency IncentivesOften times certain energy efficiency improvements or implementations have upfront costs that take more time to pay back than current budgets allow. That’s where financial incentives from states and local utility companies can be helpful. Most states and energy utilities have programs to encourage commercial and residential building energy efficiency.

 
K&A’s Engineering department is continually researching the most current and relevant financial incentives to ensure our clients have access to incentive funding, grants, and/or rebates that they may qualify for. Clients have also hired us specifically to submit applications for rebates and financial incentives on their behalf.

 
K&A has proven experience with financial incentives in our region; the New Jersey Clean Energy Program has a wide array of programs in the residential and commercial sectors for both new and existing buildings. We have substantial experience working with the “Pay for Performance” program and are an approved partner with NJ Clean Energy. We also have considerable experience with ENERGY STAR for Homes, as many affordable housing developments are achieving this standard. We ensure that the design meets the efficiency standards and also verify compliance through the HERS rating program.

 
The majority of incentives in Pennsylvania are available through utility companies. Utilities are mandated by PA Act 129 to reduce electricity consumption and demand and each of the utilities have devised their own incentive programs. K&A is an approved PECO “Trade Ally” and partners with PECO’s “Smart Ideas” incentive program. We also help clients apply for funds from Philadelphia Gas Works’ (PGW) “Energy Sense” program.
