Custom Business Energy Upgrades Measures 

Custom business energy upgrades do not explicitly specify eligible measures to provide program participants maximum flexibility in identifying potential projects. Participants may propose the inclusion of any measure that:

  • Produces a verifiable reduction in annual electric energy consumption without creating an increase in summer peak demand usage
  • Is installed in a retrofit or new construction (if applicable) application 
  • Is cost-effective as measured by the Total Resource Cost (TRC) test perspective

Measures that are excluded from consideration in this program: 

  • Are eligible for rebates through any other InvestSmart with JEA program:
  • Receive a rebate through any other energy efficiency program offered by JEA 
  • Rely solely on changes in customer behavior and require no capital investment 
  • Produce an electric energy reduction through substitution of another energy source for electricity 
  • Merely terminate existing processes, facilities, operations, or vacancies 
  • Relocate existing processes, facilities, or operations out of JEA’s service territory 
  • Are required by local, state, or federal law; building or other codes, or are standard industry practice 
  • Generate electricity, including co-generation or renewable energy generation
  • Energy Conservation Measures that apply duty cycling technology in air conditioning or heating units 
  • Energy Conservation Measures are subject to provide third party lab results according to JEA's discretion
