Special considerations and other comments:
How did you hear about the New Construction Design Review program?
  1. Eligibility:
    a) These incentives are offered by Missouri River Energy Services and its participating members. For questions regarding eligibility, call your local utility listed on the cover page of this application.
    b) Commercial, industrial, and governmental customers who purchase electricity from The Utility are eligible to participate in the Bright Energy Solutions® New Construction Design Review Program. Eligible equipment must be connected to an electric service billed under a commercial or industrial rate class by The Utility.
    c) Equipment or measures installed under the Program must result in a reduction in electric load due to improvement in system efficiency. Control upgrades may qualify.
    d) All projects must be pre-approved to qualify for an incentive. Equipment ordered, purchased or installed prior to approval will not qualify unless special exception is made by The Utility, at its discretion.
    e) Equipment must operate a minimum of 1500 hours annually to be eligible.
    f) All installations must be permanent.
    g) Measures with less than a 5 year useful life or projects eligible for other Bright Energy Solutions programs are not eligible.
    h) All installations must meet federal, state and local electrical code and building code requirements.

    j) Customers may not receive more than one incentive for each piece of equipment installed under this program or any combination of Bright Energy Solutions programs.
    k) This program is applicable only to projects and equipment that meet the detailed specifications and requirements of this application. The Utility will determine, at its discretion, whether such specifications and requirements have been satisfied.
    l) Projects shall provide savings to the utility for the life of the equipment. If the applicant ceases to be a customer of The Utility, or the equipment is removed prior to the end of the useful life of the equipment, the applicant may be required to return a prorated amount of the incentive, if requested by The Utility.
    m) The following projects do not qualify for New Construction Design Review:
        • Back-up or redundant equipment;
        • Products required by code;
        • Projects involving fuel switching;
        • Projects involving operational or settings changes with no capital cost;
        • Power generation projects;
        • Peak shifting or load shedding projects;

    c) Data contained in the application must be sufficient to verify the size, efficiency, costs, and assumptions and calculations for demand and energy savings described in the application. The customer must provide additional data reasonably requested by The Utility.
    d) Demand and energy savings calculations and assumptions must be certified by a qualified individual representing the customer.
    e) The customer must submit copies of all project invoices, specifying materials/equipment purchased (including make, model, size, efficiency rating, quantity purchased, etc.), date ordered, installation costs, and disposal costs for old equipment, if applicable.

    b) Equipment installations are subject to inspection by utility personnel before and after installation and prior to approval of an incentive.
    c) The Utility reserves the right to revise incentive levels and/or qualifying efficiency levels at any time. Projects that were pre-approved prior to the effective date of changes will be eligible for the incentive amount at the time the application was filed or for the new incentive amount, whichever is higher.

Incentives will be paid on a “first-come, first-served” basis. The minimum incentive application is $500.
    h) Customers may not receive more than one incentive for each piece of equipment installed under this program or any other Bright Energy Solutions program.
    i) The total incentive is limited to 75 percent of the project cost, including installation.
