Municipal Programs

Municipal Programs

The Municipal program is designed for municipal customers of any size on a commercial account to help with the purchase of energy efficient equipment as part of a new construction or renovation project, replacement of equipment that has reached its end of useful life, or to replace less efficient existing equipment.

Prescriptive Incentives (New and Retrofit)

  • Chillers (New Only)
  • Compressed Air
  • Heating, Cooling, and Water Heating
  • HVAC (New Only)
  • Lighting
  • Motors
  • Variable Frequency Drive

Custom Incentives

Less common installations, not included on the prescriptive applications, may also qualify for incentives as Custom measures. Project cost and potential energy savings are quantified and evaluated through a benefit/cost model to determine eligibility for incentives.

Technical Assistance

Technical assistance by an outside engineering firm may be offered to any municipal customer when it is necessary to quantify the energy savings potential of a proposed project. Liberty Utilities will typically fund 50% of the cost.

Availability of Funding

In general, incentives for retrofit projects cover up to 35% of the project cost (50% for lighting). New equipment and construction incentives cover up to 75% of the incremental cost for the most efficient options. Incentives cover up to 100% of the incremental cost for efficient options used in school construction, expansion, or major renovation.

All incentives are subject to funding availability. Certain caps and restrictions apply. Once you receive an incentive approval, your incentive is fixed and the money is reserved for your project.


Financing at 0% may be available for the portion of the project cost not covered by the incentive. Repayment of any loan amount would appear as a charge on your monthly electric bill. The term of any loan, typically 12 to 24 months, depends on the source of the loan funds, but is sometimes as long as 120 months.

Free Energy Audits

Free audits are available to municipal customers to help you identify opportunities for improved energy efficiency.

Municipal Customers may complete installations using in-house staff or your own vendor/contractor. You may request additional assistance or schedule a free energy audit by calling 603-637-4346 or by sending an email to
