Want to save money on your monthly electric bill? Are you thinking of replacing a heating/AC system, light fixture, light bulbs or add a motion sensor switch. If any of these apply to your business SMECO currently has programs available that can reduce your monthly electric bill and repay part of the cost for upgrading bulbs and fixtures. Beginning around March 2012 SMECO will be offering an energy audit program for small businesses similar to the program for homes. Check out their website at https://www.smeco.coop/energy/index.php for updates and information on this and other programs. SMECO currently offers rebates for lighting and heating/AC changes that increase energy efficiency. These are as simple as $25 for upgrading to a more energy efficient fixture or $100 to install an occupancy sensor, as large as $1,350 for installing a 5 HP VFD on your HVAC system.
