Cape Light Compact Offers Increased Savings for the Region’s Businesses  

South Yarmouth, MA – To help Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard businesses, Cape Light Compact (Compact), the local Mass Save® Sponsor, is offering increased incentives on energy efficient upgrades. Businesses can take advantage of these increased offerings either by signing up for a no-cost Business Energy Assessment or by purchasing direct from a qualified distributor. The Compact is proud to offer this financial support to businesses during these difficult and uncertain times.

For businesses looking to have a comprehensive energy assessment, the Compact is offering up to 100% incentives available on recommended energy efficiency improvements which could include lighting, refrigeration, water-saving devices and more. This special offer is available for customers who sign up by November 30th.

If you are a business and prefer to use your own contractor, you can receive instant rebates applied at the time of purchase on commercial lighting from participating electrical distributors. Businesses in the food service industry can also save on select high-efficiency commercial kitchen equipment by purchasing direct from participating foodservice dealers. These incentives revert to their normal amounts after November 30th.

Businesses can also save on HVAC equipment. The Compact recently launched a new small commercial heat pump program for eligible ductless and ducted air-source heat pump systems that are less than 5.4 tons in size. Businesses can receive rebates up to $1250/ton if minimum requirements are met. If a business is looking to install other HVAC equipment, the Compact offers incentives for eligible high-efficiency equipment from participating distributors.

Cape Air and the Provincetown Airport recently took advantage of the Compact’s no-cost lighting upgrades. Jim Wolf, Sustainability Program Director for Cape Air, stated that, “Thanks to a limited time discount being offered by Cape Light Compact to commercial customers at zero cost, Cape Air and Provincetown Airport management decided to proceed with the energy efficiency lighting upgrades. The project is expected to save the airport 29.6 metrics tons of greenhouse gases and $7,000 in electric costs annually. The whole process of working with the Compact was simple and easy.”

Maggie Downey, Compact Administrator, stated that, “As our local businesses face uncertain financial times as we head into winter, the Compact is committed to providing as much help as we can. These increased incentives will help businesses save on energy costs and increase comfort for employees and customers alike.”
