The equipment should meet or exceed the requirements found in the incentives Catalog. You must submit the final application within 90 days of incentive reservation or 60 days from project completion, whichever comes first.

Custom Program

If your project goes beyond the Prescriptive program, Consumers Energy will create an energy efficient solution for you and give you an incentive of $.08 per kilowatt hour saved or $5.00/MCF. The more energy you save, the more money you’ll earn back in incentives. Each facility can earn up to $200,000 in custom incentives per program year.
