Perks and incentives - Improve your bottom line. Re2 now offers cash rebates based on your energy savings up to $25,000 or 30% of the project cost. To qualify for the highest cash incentives, projects should target at least 15 percent energy savings. Rebates can be combined with Re2 financing options. Financial incentives from Focus on Energy and We Energies may be available, maximizing the assistance available to implement energy-efficiency projects.
Performance - with Re²'s help, your building and equipment work how they were meant to: efficiently, quietly, and effectively. Studies have also shown that employee productivity is higher in work spaces that are energy efficient than those that are not.
