Small Business Efficiency Grants Available

This news was released 627 days ago and may contain inaccurate information.

In collaboration with Platte River Power Authority, Fort Collins Utilities now offers cash grants up to $5,000 to help small business customers implement energy and water efficiency projects. Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis while funding is available or until December 1, and can be combined with other Utilities’ rebates.

The grant is designed to reduce the amount a small business or non-profit pays for eligible energy and water efficiency projects, including:

• lighting
• cooling
• building tune-up
• refrigeration
• restrooms
• laundry
• other water and energy saving projects (e.g., dishwashers, sprinkler systems)

Businesses are required to have a free facility assessment provided by Utilities and meet the qualifying rate class, square footage requirements and/or have non-profit status. The project (or combination of qualifying projects) and grant must be pre-approved.

Learn about other commercial rebate opportunities for lighting, building tune-ups, and electric and water equipment upgrades. These programs are designed to help businesses achieve actual savings by using electricity and water more efficiently by retrofitting systems and/or equipment and lowering utility bills. Estimated payback times are typically less than two years.
