Rural Industrial Offerings

We realize businesses located in rural communities face different challenges than those in urban areas. Having limited resources – whether it be funding or people – can make completing energy efficient upgrades more challenging to tackle. We want to help move your business forward which is why we’re excited to announce new offerings available exclusively to industrial customers located in rural areas!

Not sure if you’re eligible for these offerings? Industrial facilities, defined as a business whose primary activity is the manufacturing and processing of goods and materials, located in rural designated ZIP codes are eligible. Find out if your site is located in a rural area by using our eligibility tool to the right or downloading the complete list of eligible rural industrial ZIP codes. Work with your Energy Advisor to ensure you qualify for these offerings.

Rural Industrial Staffing Incentives

Not having enough staffing support on your team can result in energy efficiency projects being put on the back burner. Through the Rural Industrial Staffing Incentive, customers have the opportunity to receive up to an additional 20% in financial incentives to help offset the internal administrative costs of identifying and implementing energy efficiency projects and participating in the Focus on Energy.

Get started by contacting an Energy Advisor today. Not sure who your Energy Advisor is? Visit our Energy Advisor map to find out or call us at 888.623.2146, and we will get you in touch with someone to help walk you through the process.
