Small Business

Whether you own a convenience store, place of worship, small family business, or diner, you can reduce your energy costs while enhancing workplace comfort. The Small Business Solutions Program offers small business customers the opportunity to retrofit existing equipment with more energy-efficient technologies.

The Small Business Solutions Program offers incentives for qualifying energy-efficient equipment upgrades like lighting, refrigeration, and smart thermostat retrofit projects to all SMECO commercial customers with a monthly demand of 60 kilowatts (kW) or less over a 12-month period. So whether you own a convenience store, serve at a place of worship, or run a small family business, you can reduce your energy costs while enhancing workplace comfort.

You’ll also see a fast return on investment, thanks to financial incentives that cover up to 80% of retrofit project costs. Plus, you also have the ability to spread your 20% cost of qualifying projects over 12 monthly payments through a no-interest SMECO Small Business Advance.
