I recently blogged about how a flower shop could go green, but my boss was apparently already ahead of me, thanks to the Small Business Program from National Grid. When I came back from Christmas break, every light bulb/fixture in the store had been switched to an energy-efficient model – some of the bulbs are supposed to last 10 years! And the best part? National Grid pays for most of the initial install.
I’m not sure how much longer this program will be available, but if you own or know of a business in the North Country that wants to take advantage of this program, here are the details:
For business customers with an average demand use of 100 kW or less, we can help you reduce your company’s energy costs by installing energy-efficient equipment.
- We can provide a free energy audit and report of recommended energy efficiency improvements
- We pay up to 70% of the cost of the installation of energy-efficient equipment and you can finance your share of the cost, interest free for up to 24 months.
