Efficiency Programs & Rebates

NPU offers programs uniquely designed for our business customers. We do not believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Instead, each program is customized for the size and nature of the business, starting with a free energy analysis of your facility.

Lighting Retrofit Program

Upgrading your facility’s lighting is the first step towards making your building more energy-efficient. Replacing inefficient lighting with Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is an inexpensive investment that offers a fast payback. NPU is currently only rebating LEDs with Controls. All LEDs must be Energy Star or DLC rated and have Integrated Controls installed along with the new or retrofit fixtures.  Contact NPU for more information about available lighting rebates.

Cool Choice Central Air Rebate Program

The Cool Choice Central Air Conditioning Rebate Program promotes significant energy savings, lower cooling costs, and a positive impact on the environment. Rebates are available to NPU’s commercial, industrial, institutional, agricultural, and residential electric service customers to help defray the cost of buying high-efficiency HVAC systems.

Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) has a long-standing commitment to renewable energy, with approximately 20% of the electricity delivered to our customers coming from our hydro-power facilities and solar gardens. NPU has also installed a number of solar power systems on city-owned properties which allows the City of Norwich to save money on their energy costs while providing educational opportunities for students in the community.

While NPU does not offer rebates for residential or commercial solar projects, we do support the installation of private solar energy systems. All systems require an interconnection agreement with NPU prior to installation in order for them to be tied into our distribution system.
