Commercial and Industrial Ameren customers are eligible for cash incentives through the BizSavers Program. There are also several other notable incentives offered for solar and energy efficiency which are included below.
With Missouri Senate Bill 564 passing in June 2018, there will be a rebate offered for solar interconnected into the grid, starting on January 1, 2019. Rebates will be paid out at $0.50 per watt before June 30th, 2019. On July 1, rebates will be paid out at $0.25 per watt until the $8 million of allotted funds are depleted. Applications are starting now, and funds are limited, so the time to act is now. Once funds for the $0.50 per watt program are gone, the $0.25 per watt program will begin.
This Bizsavers Program reduces the costs of energy efficiency improvements by offering several cash incentives. It offers a variety of incentive programs to fit different project types, sizes, and budgets.
There are various incentives relating to energy-efficient services and equipment for Ameren Missouri electric business customers. Some of the businesses Ameren Missouri has given cash incentives to include nonprofit organizations. Schools, government institutions, restaurants, retail stores, gas stations, etc.
Standard incentives are paid on a per-unit-installed basis and are available for qualified improvements. Pre-approval for projects with standard measures is not required unless the incentive is expected to be more than $10,000. Eligibility for a standard incentive requires customers to install measures achieving a minimum total incentive of $150 per application. The Standard Incentives Application can be downloaded here.
If your business’ energy efficiency improvement is not on the standard incentives list, you could be eligible for a custom incentive. Custom incentives are calculated based on the projected annual energy reduction. A pre-approval incentive is required for these incentives before equipment purchase or installation. The Custom Incentive Application can be downloaded here.
Ameren offers incentives for ground-up construction, additions or expansions, and complete commercial building restorations. It encourages building owners to install systems with higher energy efficiency than the standard of planned systems. New construction incentives must be applied for and approved prior to construction and purchase and installation of the equipment. The New Construction Incentive Application can be downloaded here.
Retro-Commissioning improves a building’s operations and maintenance procedures, which helps enhance overall building performance. Your facility must have more than 100,000 sq. ft. of conditioned space or systems that exhibit higher average energy use intensity to be eligible for Ameren’s program.
