Technical support and cash incentives are offered to owners and design teams for new construction, major renovation, and building addition projects. This multi-faceted program offering covers incentives for new energy efficient equipment, free technical assistance for smaller projects, and incentives for design teams participating in the design support process for larger projects.
All new construction and major renovation projects are eligible for cash incentives for a broad list of pre-qualified prescriptive measures, or custom measures which exceed the Maryland State Energy Code efficiency requirements.
Comprehensive Design Support
In addition to equipment incentives, for projects larger than 50,000 sq. ft. of conditioned space, we offer the services of energy engineering professionals who will work with the customer and their design team from the conceptual design to design stages to review plans and equipment specifications in an effort to maximize available prescriptive and custom program incentives. We offer cash incentives to the design team for work and analysis necessary to accommodate Program recommendations accepted by the customer.
The Comprehensive Design Support requirements and processes are structured to support participation in the LEED rating system, if the customer so desires. However, the Program energy baseline will be compatible with the most recently adopted Maryland State Building Code, which references ASHRAE 90.1-2013.
In addition to equipment incentives, for projects less than 50,000 sq. ft. of conditioned space, we offer free technical assistance to promote energy efficiency options. Our energy engineering professionals will work with you or your design professionals to review plans and equipment specifications in an effort to maximize available prescriptive and custom program incentives. Projects larger than 50,000 sq. ft. of conditioned space are eligible for technical assistance, or may participate in Comprehensive Design Support described below.
