Whether you’re constructing a new building, expanding your existing facility, installing new equipment, or replacing aging equipment, your partners at NHSaves offer financial incentives and technical assistance to help with your project. Review the Electric Program Flyer.

Efficient chillers can lower the temperature of machinery and industrial spaces—reducing the wear and tear on equipment and lowering energy costs.  Chillers provided centralized cooling in buildings and work by producing chilled water which is used to provide air conditioning. 

Compressed air systems are an integral part of many businesses, unfortunately they are also one of the most inefficient and expensive. The good news is that there are significant opportunities to improve the efficiency of the equipment and the system which will improve performance and reduce expenses. Opportunities such as new compressors, additional storage, dryers, zero-loss condensate drains, low pressure drop filters, engineered nozzles, and leak repairs can provide significant energy savings.

Food prep is a top energy expense for restaurants, and refrigeration consumes up to 50% of the energy in a typical grocery store. Boosting efficiency can reduce these costs, keep food fresher longer, improve workspaces, and strengthen your business’s bottom line.

Get more out of your existing equipment with some important low- and no-cost fixes. Clean coils regularly, replace gaskets, use LEDs, and install automatic door closers. Replacing old evaporator fan motors with new efficient EC Motors and installing controls for fan run-time and door heaters can make your existing equipment operate more efficiently.

If you are in need to replace existing equipment or adding additional equipment, NHSAVES offers Instant incentives on New Food Service Equipment through participating distributors.

Heating and cooling are a significant energy expense and a major factor in employee and customer comfort. By upgrading to high efficiency systems, businesses can enjoy long-term reduced energy costs, decrease equipment maintenance, reduced emissions, and create a comfortable work environment.

Some of the HVAC upgrade options available to commercial customers are: 

  • Heat Pumps
  • Air Source Heat Pump (mini-split)
  • Variable Refrigerant Flow Heat Pump (VRF)
  • Ground Source Heat Pump (Geothermal)
  • Heat Pump Water Heaters
  • Dual Enthalpy Economizer Controls
  • Chillers
  • VFDs
  • Electronically Commutated Motor, or ECM, Circulator Pumps

Heat Pump Technology 

While heat pump technology is not new, the equipment and technology are always advancing. A heat pump uses technology similar to a refrigerator to heat or cool your home. Heat pumps move heat rather than create heat, so it is much more efficient than other heating and cooling systems and offer efficiencies of up to 300%.  A cold-climate heat pump can even provide heat when it is -15°F outside!!  In hot humid summer months, they are able to effectively dehumidify without having to overcool the space which creates better comfort and lower energy costs.

Instant discounts at participating distributors 

Eversource, Unitil, and New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, customers can now access instant incentives when purchasing high-efficiency HVAC equipment from a participating distributor.  Incentives are provided instantly off of the cost of the equipment with no applications or paperwork to complete.

Qualifying HVAC equipment that are not purchased through a participating distributor may still be eligible for an incentive using the application below:

LED lighting delivers exceptional features while using 50 – 90% less energy and can last up to 15 times longer than equivalent incandescent bulbs. Choosing LED lighting options that meet strict quality and efficiency standards and are tested by accredited labs and certified by a third party, will ensure you get the quality and performance you expect.  Incentives of up to 50% are available to defray the upfront costs of installing LED and controls

Even if your business’s lighting system is newer, you may still have opportunities available to save. If your current fixtures are newer and/or in good condition, retrofitting your existing light fixtures to LED’s can be an inexpensive way to start saving energy

Upgrade to new efficient lighting fixtures: Install new fixtures and receive the benefit of an aesthetic upgrade while you save energy!

Install lighting controls: As an added benefit, many new LED fixtures come with the option to have controls added to the fixtures right at the factory, or as an add-on at the install location.  These controls can enable you to save additional energy by dimming the lights when adequate natural light is coming through the windows, dimming or shutting off lights when unoccupied, as well as tying into your building automation system.

A VFD ensures a smoother start that is easier on your equipment while also saving energy by adjusting the speed of the equipment to meet the needs of the task.  Fans and pumps that are turned down just 10% can save up to 25% in energy costs and in most systems, reducing its speed by 50% can cause a 75% drop in energy consumption. Some common opportunities for VFDs are cooling tower fans, exhaust fans, air supply fans, boiler draft fans, kitchen hoods, HVAC rooftop units, and dust collection fans, hot water pumps, chilled water pumps, process pumps, and water source heat pump loops
