The Electric Division of the Wallingford Department of Public Utilities (WED) offers these programs and suggestions to help you reduce your electric costs.
- Lighting retrofit projects: Incentive payments up to 40% of the pre-tax project cost as long as the customer's payback period does not exceed five years. (A project might qualify for a pro-rated incentive payment if the projected payback exceeds five years.)
- Process equipment, HVAC replacement and retrofit projects: Incentive payments up to 40% of the pre-tax differential cost of the standard efficiency and higher energy efficiency equipment as long as the customer's payback period does not exceed five years. (A project might quality for a pro-rated incentive if the projected payback exceeds five years). Equipment such as air conditioning equipment (>30 tons), variable frequency drives (VFDs) and air compressor equipment may be considered for incentive eligibility.
