Commercial and Institutional Custom Program
For DC building owners, it’s not news that utility bills eat into their bottom line. Energy costs are the single largest operating expense for office buildings in the District. Commercial and institutional buildings in DC consume $800 million worth of electricity per year—70 percent of the city’s total energy consumption. Finding ways to reduce that energy consumption can go a long way to creating more sustainable buildings and saving business owners energy and money. The DC SEU offers comprehensive energy services to owners of large buildings in the District who are replacing old equipment, renovating an existing building, or beginning a new construction project. These services include financial incentives, technical and design assistance, and coordinating services to assist consumers, design professionals, vendors, and contractors in overcoming the barriers to installing energy-efficient equipment.
Any measure or operational improvement you are making in your building that provides cost-effective electric or natural gas savings is potentially eligible to receive services from the Commercial and Institutional Custom Program.
