Program Overview » How Does It Work?

Customers can take advantage of the EBEW Program and start saving energy and money with just a handful of easy steps.  See below for an overview of our process:


Step 1: Program Overview and Facility Survey

An EBEW representative or Program Approved Contractor will provide an overview of the program and conduct an assessment of your facility to identify energy saving opportunities. 

Step 2: Project Proposal / Participation Agreement

You will be provided with a detailed, no-obligation project proposal that includes expected savings, project costs, and the amount of incentive to subsidize your costs.  If you wish to proceed, a Participation Agreement, which includes the proposal information, must be signed by all parties.

Step 3: Pre-Installation Inspection

EBEW may conduct a pre-installation inspection to ensure that all proposed measures are feasible and appropriate for your facility.

Step 4: Measure Installation

A Program Approved Contractor will contact you to schedule an installation.  In most cases, the measures can be installed with little to no business interruption.

Step 5: Project Completion Form

The Program Approved Contractor will sign the Project Completion Form verifying that the work has been completed. You must counter-sign the form to confirm that the work was completed to your satisfaction.

Step 6: Post-Installation Inspection

DNV GL may conduct a post-installation inspection to verify that all measures were correctly installed.

Step 7: Final Project Notification

DNV GL will notify you and the Program Approved Contractor of the final incentive payment amount based on inspection results. The incentive will be paid directly to the Contractor. You will receive an invoice from the Contractor for your portion of the project cost.

That's it!  Don't delay.  Contact us today to get started!
