Our 2019 Iowa Energy Efficiency spending is lower than planned, so we’re lifting caps on business energy efficiency programs. Click here to learn more.
The Nonresidential Energy Solutions program promotes comprehensive energy efficiency for existing commercial buildings and industrial facilities through two offerings: small business express and direct project assistance. These offerings are tailored to the unique needs of nonresidential customers by size and purpose. Business owners can increase their bottom lines by lowering monthly operating costs and investing in advanced efficient technologies while improving building operations and comfort. This program also will serve agriculture and market-rate multifamily customers.
