Commercial/Public

Please note for the purposes of this web page, commercial/public buildings and facilities include governmental, healthcare and educational facilities. For more specific resources for educational facilities, see our schools web page.

Given that the commercial/public sector represents 13 percent of Kentucky’s total energy use, Kentucky businesses and governmental agencies have the potential to save millions of dollars annually by adopting technologies and practices that improve energy efficiency, conserve resources and increase productivity.

To help businesses tap into these opportunities, the following resources are provided:

Commercial Incentives & Financing: 
  • Maximize utilization of commercial tax incentives when installing efficiency measures
  • Consult with your gas or electric utility for available efficiency incentives
  • Consider low-cost PACE/EPAD financing through your community. Learn about EPAD under Local Government heading below.
  • Use the Financing Navigator to explore alternative financing options.
Performance Contracting: 
 
Energy savings performance contracting (ESPC) is a financial and procurement mechanism that allows entities to pay for energy savings measures with existing budgets. While performance contracting is mostly utilized by educational entities, state and local governments, the private sector can also take advantage of ESPCs.
