Small Business Program

We can help build a better future for your small business.

Programs and assistance for lowering your energy costs and raising your profile.

During these times, it's important to know that we support small businesses of every kind. Every day we’re helping establishments like yours get back to what they do best with energy-saving solutions that can improve ambiance, safety, and customer confidence—while lowering your monthly overhead costs.

Featured programs for Rhode Island customers:

We will cover up to 70% of the installation costs for indoor LEDs, outdoor LEDs, and lighting occupancy sensors at your small business.

A new high-efficiency heat pump, boiler, or furnace can reduce your energy bills and improve comfort for your employees and customers.

Programmable thermostats provide a cost-effective control solution to save money on heating and air conditioning.

Improve insulation and air sealing at your property with incentives and expert support.

Incentives are available for refrigeration and walk-in cooler efficiency measures.

We can help fund upgrades at your small business with installation discounts on projects including, but not limited to, custom lighting, variable speed drives, energy management systems, and heat pumps.

How to get started.

When you’re ready, schedule a no-cost energy assessment, and together we can determine what energy-saving solutions are best for your business.
