New Construction Program

TEP’s New Construction Program is designed to assist customers in constructing energy-efficient buildings.

Whole Building Design

Rebates are available for commercial customers with projects that integrate high-performance design into new buildings and demonstrate it through energy simulation modeling. Incentives are available only for projects that are at least 10 percent more energy efficient than the baseline building standards established in ASHRAE 90.1-2010 Standards, Appendix G. Applicants are required to implement energy simulation model software capable of performance analysis on an hourly basis. Software options include eQUEST, Trane Trace, Carrier HAP, Energy-Pro or DOE 2-based analysis software. Other simulation modeling software may be used with prior program team approval.

Systems Approach

Rebates are available for customers with less-complex projects that incorporate energy efficiency later in the design phase or if their systems are designed in different phases. The Systems Approach does not require whole-building models to be created and encourages designers to optimize the energy efficiency of individual systems within a building. Incentives are available for lighting power density and HVAC (electric) upgrades. Worksheets for these incentives are included in the program application.

For a limited time, we are offering a stipend up to $5,000 for completed projects and new applications.
