The Commercial & Industrial Custom Program targets cost-effective, site-specific energy efficiency projects that require tailored engineering analyses. Maine businesses, institutions, nonprofits, and governments can apply for financial incentives to offset the cost of electrical efficiency, distributed generation, or thermal efficiency projects. Awards range from a minimum of $10,000 to a maximum of $1 million per customer per year, or up to 50% of the total project cost. Customers may also be eligible for free scoping audits and technical assistance incentives.
