Consulted on projects to help Utilities design rebate programs for lighting, motors and variable frequency drives. Appropriate rebates were calculated by taking baseline considerations, which essentially are standards enforced by local Building and Safety officials based on Title-24 of the California Energy Commission. We also advised on rebate structure for efficient lighting and motors and on state of the art controls. Rebates were linked up to a custom program based on the utilities long-term avoided costs.
