Not every project that saves energy will fit the mold of one of the existing SMECO Programs. For these type of projects, SMECO will look closely at the energy savings and costs to determine the incentive the customer may receive. Some Custom projects can include, but are not limited to:

  • Variable Refrigerant Flow Systems
  • Floating Head/Suction Pressure on Refrigeration Rack Systems
  • Compressed Air Systems

Ready to Get Started?

Before beginning the application process, talk with a SMECO Business Solutions Representative to determine the eligibility of the proposed project and to establish requirements for detailed savings projections and cost estimates.
