For Your Business

Commercial & Industrial Incentives

Springfield Utility Board (SUB) offers incentives to Commercial and Industrial customers for eligible, prequalified energy efficiency upgrades. SUB offers many BPA-approved measures—HVAC, Kitchen Equipment, Lighting, etc.—but at the adjusted incentive levels per the formulas below. Contact SUB for details.

Please contact SUB if you plan to submit a project Application or if you have any questions about the status of existing or pending projects.


Applications will be considered for approval on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to the availability of SUB funds. Incentive funds are reserved for an approved project for 4 months from the date SUB approves the signed application.


  • Applications must be submitted and approved before removal of existing equipment
  • All projects must be pre-authorized and approved by SUB before installation

Submitting Applications

  • SUB Incentive Application (PDF) signed by the SUB customer on both page 1 and page 2
  • Detailed project quote with approved disposal method of old lamps or other hazardous materials
  • Product cut-sheets (displaying input watts, and DLC or Energy Star qualification)

Projects submitted without all of the required information prior to installation will not be eligible for SUB’s Incentives.

Detailed requirements for lighting incentive programs summarized on our SUB Energy Efficiency Incentives – Commercial Lighting (PDF).

LED Lighting & Controls Incentive Amounts

LED Lighting and Controls incentive amounts are adjustments of values from SUB’s version of the SUB Lighting Calculator 05/22 (XLS). You may download, fill out and submit the Lighting Calculator (LC) to SUB. SUB will review and may change your LC inputs to conform to standard practice. Note that incentives displayed by the LC must be reduced by the formulas below.

Calculated Adjusted Incentive

Standard Incentive amounts from the SUB Lighting Calculator will be adjusted by the following formulas:

Range of Standard Incentive Formula for Adjusted Incentive
$0 to $10,000 No change to Standard Incentive
$10,000 to $50,000 $5,000 + 50% × Standard Incentive
$50,000 to $200,000 $20,000 + 20% × Standard Incentive
$200,000 to $400,000 $40,000 +  10% × Standard Incentive

SUB pays the calculated Adjusted Incentive. This applies cumulatively to all SUB incentive projects of all types at one location for 2 years.
