JEA rebates are offered for many types of energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) technologies to reduce your energy use leading to savings on your utility bill for years to come. The rebates are for commercial customers who purchase qualifying HVAC-related equipment. The rebates will help offset your initial cost of the investment. More information can be found on the HVAC Technical Sheet for these measures. Technical sheets and all related equipment workbooks can be found on the Resources page of the online application portal.

  • Unitary HVAC – includes packaged and split units, packaged terminal air conditioners and heat pumps.  More information can be found on the.  The HVAC Equipment Workbook must be filled out and uploaded to each project. 
  • Variable Frequency Drives – variable frequency drives vary speed of motors to match the exact load of HVAC equipment needed at the time so that excess energy is not used during times of below-peak demand.  As mall reduction in load is an exponential reduction in energy consumed, which leads to exponential reductions in your energy bill!  The VFD Equipment Workbook must be filled out and uploaded to each project.  
  • Chillers – chillers can consume more than 50% of energy using during seasonal periods of buildings use.  Upgrade you air cooled or water cooled chiller and receive rebates for meeting minimum efficiency levels in addition to performance-based rebates based on the efficiency of your new chiller. The Chiller Equipment Workbook must be filled out and uploaded to each project.
  • HVAC Tune-Up – accumulation of dust and debris on coils can lead to rising energy costs in addition to health and safety hazards.  Additionally, having an improper amount of refrigerant, or “charge”, can waste energy because air conditioners must run longer to to achieve the same degree of cooling as properly charged equipment.  JEA offers rebates for an HVAC tune-up that includes coil cleaning and an optional check of refrigerant charge.  The HVAC Tune-Up Equipment Workbook must be filled out and uploaded to each project.

Custom measures include those that are new, innovative and emerging technologies or may be site-specific and require further analysis of energy savings between baseline and proposed measures. Examples of custom measures include:

  • Variable Refrigerated Flow HVAC
  • Chiller Optimization projects
  • Energy Management systems
  • Industrial Process Improvements
  • Variable Frequency Drives on non-HVAC end uses

Rebates for custom projects are $.05/kWh saved and are capped at a one-year payback.  More information can be found on the Custom Technical Sheet. Technical sheets and all related equipment workbooks can be found on the Resources page of the online application portal.
