Sustainable Business Programs:
Lighting Retrofit Program
Upgrading your facility's lighting is the first step towards making your building more energy efficient. Replacing inefficient incandescent lighting with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) and high-efficient linear fluorescent tubes is an inexpensive investment that offers a fast payback. Contact NPU for more information about available lighting rebates.
Cool Choice Central Air Rebate Program
The Cool Choice Central Air Conditioning Rebate Program promotes significant energy savings, lower cooling costs and a positive impact on the environment. Rebates are available to NPU's commercial, industrial, institutional, agricultural and residential electric service customers to help defray the cost of buying high-efficiency HVAC systems.
VFDs and ECMs Upgrade Incentive (Rebate) Program
Programs are subject to change or cancellation without notice. Rebates and incentives are based on the efficiency of the equipment purchased.

Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) has a long-standing commitment to renewable energy, with approximately 20% of the electricity delivered to our customers coming from our hydro-power facilities and solar gardens. NPU has also installed a number of solar power systems on city-owned properties which allows the City of Norwich to save money on their energy costs while providing educational opportunities for students in the community.
While NPU does not offer rebates for residential or commercial solar projects, we do support the installation of private solar energy systems. All systems require an interconnection agreement with NPU prior to installation in order for them to be tied into our distribution system. For more information download this brochure:
