OPsaver | Get Paid to Optimize Building Systems

The new Energy Performance Program (EPP) offers incentives for total savings achieved across all locations, under one simplified program.

Get Rewarded for Long-Term, Ongoing Savings

Incentives are paid annually based on savings over the baseline, 2.5 cents/kWh.

You’ve optimized all of the key systems in your building. You’ve exhausted capital improvements. No stone has been left unturned. When it comes to energy management, what’s next?
