Tips to keep in mind when applying for incentives

  • There’s a program cap. In an effort to ensure equal opportunity for program participation, there is a $100,000 cap at the corporate level on yearly incentives for all EnergyRight Business & Industry projects.
  • PPN exclusivity. To provide the best consumer experience, TVA created the PPN-only requirement for the EnergyRight Business & Industry Program. All standard project submissions must go through a trained PPN member to receive an incentive. This approach increases program efficiency, improves lines of communication, promotes brand management and strengthens relationships with PPN members.
  • Incentives are capped at 70% of the materials cost, per site application.
  • Projects require pre-approval. Don’t purchase, remove or install any equipment until all pre-approval requirements are completed and you 
have received your Application Approval Notice via email.
  • Equipment purchased for projects and upgrades must meet specific energy requirements.
  • Completion of pre- and post-installation inspections may be required.
  • All incentives are subject to TVA’s and your local power company’s approval and available funding.
  • Commercial and industrial local power company customers and customers directly served by TVA may be eligible to apply for incentives.
  • For projects with incentive amounts greater than $50,000, TVA will work with you to determine an incentive offer that ensures consistent funding is available for all projects of all sizes.
