Custom Incentives for Indoor Grow

If you’re planning a larger upgrade at your indoor grow facility, Energy Trust can help with technical assistance and custom cash incentives for system upgrades. Technical studies identify energy-efficiency opportunities for HVAC, insulation and other improvements, for qualified projects. Energy Trust can pay up to 100% of the cost of a study.

New construction grow facilities may be eligible for custom incentives. Existing grow facilities may qualify if upgrading a larger HVAC and dehumidifier system.
