Get started in three simple steps
Looking to create an energy-efficient building that turns heads? Having the right resources on hand can make all the difference. Work with Energy Trust and gain access to cash incentives, technical assistance and other valuable resources that simplify the process of designing and constructing a high-performance building.
STEP 1: Enroll your project
Send in the Project Enrollment Application as early as possible to get the most out of Energy Trust technical assistance and cash incentives.
STEP 2: Apply for cash incentives
Use Energy Trust cash incentives to make the design and construction of your building more affordable.
Energy Trust can provide 75 percent of the cost of energy studies, up to $50,000. Studies may include, but are not limited to:
- Shoebox modeling during early design
- Computational fluid dynamics, CFD, analysis
- Daylighting studies
- Energy modeling
- Commissioning design review
In addition, Energy Trust provides technical guidance and may pay up to $5,000 to prepare solar plans and specifications for use during the bidding process.
STEP 3: Request payment
Energy Trust reviews each incentive application as it is submitted. Once the application is approved, the incentive is reserved until the associated work is completed. As you complete the work, submit a Substitute Form W-9 and Payment Request Form for review and approval.
