TEP is striving to achieve the aggressive goals in Arizona's Energy Efficiency Standard. The standard calls on electric utilities to increase the kilowatt hour savings realized through customer-funded energy efficiency programs each year until the cumulative reduction in usage reaches 22% by 2020.
TEP recognizes that energy efficiency can be a cost-effective way to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. TEP offers a variety of energy saving options for customers, from simple advice about energy efficiency and conservation to incentives that encourage both homeowners and businesses to invest in efficient heating and cooling and other environmentally sound upgrades.
TEP’s EasySave program (formerly known as the Small Business program) encourages small business customers and K-12 schools to take advantage of reduced pricing on high-efficiency lighting, HVAC and refrigeration measures, by working with an approved installation contractor. The process is web-based to make it easier for the customer and contractor to participate. All rebates are paid directly to the contractor which lowers the customer’s out-of-pocket expense.
EasySave Plus Program
TEP’s EasySave Plus program (formerly known as the Large Business program) offers cash rebates to offset the initial costs of installing energy-efficient measures including lighting equipment and controls, air conditioning and heat pump equipment, motors and motor drives, compressed air and refrigeration. Customers also can propose innovative energy efficiency solutions through custom measures and use their own installers.
The best time to install energy-saving measures is during construction. TEP’s New Construction program offers rebates to help commercial building owners and developers incorporate energy efficiency into their designs for new construction and major renovations.
Cash rebates are available to customers who use an approved energy simulation program to evaluate and predict a building’s energy costs. Participants have the opportunity to collaborate with energy-efficiency experts from project start to finish and can qualify for rebates to help offset initial costs.
