The DC SEU Business Energy Rebates program is designed to help businesses and institutions in DC upgrade to new energy-efficient
technologies and equipment that reduce electric and gas consumption. These rebates reduce the up-front cost of efficient lighting,
refrigeration, heating and cooling, water heating, and commercial cooking equipment, which can all help lower energy costs for small and medium-sized businesses for years to come.
The DC SEU is committed to making energy efficiency accessible to all residents of the District of Columbia.
The DC SEU’s Commercial and Institutional Services help businesses and institutions in the District save money and energy. Through a range of initiatives, the DC SEU offers financial incentives, no cost fluorescent lighting upgrades, technical assistance, and valuable information designed to help business owners make informed decisions on energy-efficiency measures that can help their businesses save energy and money now and in the future.
By 2014, all District buildings (commercial and multi-family) over 50,000 square feet must use Portfolio Manager to benchmark their energy efficiency and report that score to the city. In order to make effective improvements that can save you money, it is critical to benchmark your building to establish a baseline--or a current standard of performance--for your building’s energy use.
