Rebates available to Glenwood Springs Electric commercial customers

April 17, 2020 - Due to budget concerns caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the City of Glenwood Springs has suspended its Sustainability Program rebates until further notice. 

However, Glenwood Springs Electric customers may still qualify for rebates through MEAN (the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska, Glenwood Springs’ new bulk electricity provider), Black Hills Energy and CORE (Community Office for Resource Efficiency). CORE also offers grants for innovative projects.

If you own a business, commercial property or multi-family residential complex, these rebates can cut the cost of such upgrades as:

  • Custom efficiency projects – these may include lighting, refrigeration, building cooling systems, insulation and air sealing, motors and motor controls, engine block timers, heat tape timers and more
  • Solar installations – systems up to 10KW are eligible
  • Engineering-grade assessment – advisable for buildings with large or complex mechanical systems
  • Retro-commissioning – may be advisable for mechanical systems and controls that need to be tuned up and configured for greater energy efficiency

We strongly encourage you to discuss your options with one of our consultants at the very beginning of the process. (See the sidebar/below about free building walk-throughs.)
