Partners for a Clean Environment (PACE) will continue to provide rebates in 2018 to help your business improve its energy efficiency and generate renewable energy!
Boulder County has allocated $140,000 to fund energy efficiency rebates for businesses throughout Boulder County. The City of Boulder has provided $600,000 from its Climate Action Plan (CAP) tax for additional rebates in Boulder, as well as incentives to offset the costs of energy audits required by the City’s Building Performance Ordinance.
2018 Rebate Highlights

Rebate Limits per Parcel:
• $2,000 annually outside city of Boulder
• $20,000 annually in city of Boulder
• $5,000 lifetime for HVAC equipment
• $15,000 annually for renewable energy (does not count toward parcel caps listed above)
Additional Rebate Limits:
Rebates will be limited such that the simple payback period for any project, with all rebates and incentives deducted from total project costs, is not less than two years.
The total of all rebates and incentives cannot exceed 50% of total project costs.
Rebate Reservations: A signed contract will be required to reserve rebates over $5,000. A contractor bid signed by the business indicating intent to proceed will be required to reserve rebates between $1,000 and $5,000.
The list of eligible measures and rebate amounts have stayed the same for 2018. EnergySmart is still offering rebates of $1 per watt for all electric-generating renewable energy measures up to a maximum rebate amount of $15,000. In addition to rebates for lighting, HVAC and renewable energy projects, PACE also offers rebates for building envelope, compressors, motors, fans, pumps, and office and food service equipment.
