Efficiency Maine funding opportunity invites service stations with retail operations to step up conversions to high-efficiency equipment
Maine service stations with retail operations now have the opportunity to upgrade heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, LED lighting, and refrigeration equipment. For a limited-time, Efficiency Maine is offering a special promotion that aims to accelerate the conversion to high-efficiency equipment at service stations across the state.
Enhanced incentives are available for eligible high-performance heat pumps, variable refrigerant flow systems, energy recovery ventilator projects, an array of refrigeration measures, and interior and exterior LED lighting. The limited-time offer began on September 1, 2021. The application deadline is January 31, 2022. Accepted projects must be completed by May 1, 2022. Detailed incentive information on the qualifying equipment can be found in the Service Station Retrofits Funding Opportunity Notice.
Service stations with retail operations, such as convenience stores, food franchises, restaurants, or tourist gift shops, are eligible to apply for incentives under this funding opportunity. Other businesses are not eligible but may qualify for other incentives offered through Efficiency Maine. Those businesses can go to the Efficiency Maine website to learn more about energy efficiency solutions, how to get started, and program details.
