Open more doors for your business with programs and assistance for lowering your energy costs.
Rhode Island Energy is here to help your small business reduce energy costs and create a comfortable environment for your customers and staff.
Regardless of what type of business you run, this program can help you reduce your monthly electric and gas costs—while improving comfort, equipment reliability, and customer and employee satisfaction. The best part: all the money you save can be invested right back into your business.
Whether you own or rent your building, you could receive incentives up to 70% off installation and equipment costs of qualified energy efficiency projects, including custom projects.
Available energy efficiency equipment may include:
If you are eligible, you can have your share of the project’s costs placed on your monthly electric bill for up to 24 months at no interest. Or, you can pay in one lump sum (and we’ll discount your amount due by 15 percent).

- Be an active Rhode Island Energy electric customer
- Pay the System Benefits Charge (SBC)
- Have an average annual usage of 1.5 M kWh or less, or 40k therms or less
