Operations & Maintenance Improvements

Energy Trust works with industrial customers to help reduce operating expenses, improve productivity and eliminate energy waste at industrial facilities.

Energy Trust will work with you to:

  1. Conduct an assessment of your facility to help identify energy and cost-saving opportunities.

  2. Implement energy-efficient changes in real-time. We’ll provide technical assistance to help you adjust set points and re-commission systems to maximize energy savings and cash incentives.

  3. Complete savings verification so final energy savings can be calculated and documented. Then, final incentives will be paid out based on verified savings.

Simple changes in your facility’s operation and maintenance (O&M) practices can optimize plant system operations and produce energy savings of up to 20%.

Cash incentives are available for your O&M projects based on the annual energy savings you achieve. The maximum incentive for an O&M project is $125,000. Incentives are based on verified energy savings at a rate of:

  • $0.05 per annual kilowatt-hour saved
  • $0.50 per annual therm saved

Incentives are subject to funding availability and may change.
