incentive Base incentive Bonus incentive New or existing facilities Qualifying Technologies : Qualifying Technologies PTACs Water Source Heat Pumps Condensing Units Rooftop Units Split Systems Variable Air Volume Boxes Oversized Cooling Towers Chillers Prescriptive Program Application Process : Prescriptive Program Application Process PTACs Base: $50/ton, Bonus:$4/incremental 0.1 EER Water Source Heat Pumps Base: $50/ton, Bonus:$4/incremental 0.1 EER Rooftop Units Base: $50/ton, Bonus:$4/incremental 0.1 EER Condensing Units Base: $25/ton, Bonus:$4/incremental 0.1 EER Split Systems Base: $25/ton, Bonus:$3/incremental 0.1 SEER Prescriptive Program Application Process : Prescriptive Program Application Process Chillers-Scroll or Rotary Screw Base: $10/ton, Bonus:$3/incremental 0.01 kW/ton Chillers-Centrifugal Base: $12/ton, Bonus:$3/incremental 0.01 kW/ton VAV Boxes $200/Box, must replace a CAV system Cooling Towers $3/nominal tower ton Sample Rebate Calculations : Sample Rebate Calculations Rooftop AC example Assume 10 ton rooftop unit, 12 EER Minimum Efficiency is 11 EER Base rebate $50/ton $4/ton for each increment above base 10 ton x $50/ton = $500 (12 EER-11 EER)/0.1=10 10 ton x 10 x $4/ton = $400 Total: $500 + $400 = $900 Prescriptive Program Application Process : Prescriptive Program Application Process Determine if equipment qualifies Purchase and install
