Dominion Energy’s Small Business Improvement Enhanced Program is designed to help your small business keep costs down while also meeting your sustainability goals. A Small Business Improvement Enhanced assessment will help you identify ways you can make your business more energy efficient and even have part of the improvement costs refunded to you by Dominion Energy.

A participating contractor will perform an on-site energy assessment of your facility. They will then make recommendations on what measures can be installed and/or what re-commissioning can be performed to make your energy more energy efficient.

After the measures are installed, you'll receive a personalized report showing the estimated energy savings you can expect – and once you've provided documentation of the improvements, a portion of your installation costs will be refunded to you. Upgrade measures include:

  • Lighting systems such as LED lighting, exit signs and occupancy sensors
  • HVAC system tune-up for air conditioners, heat pumps and air-cooled chillers
  • Duct testing and sealing for air conditioners, heat pumps and chillers
  • HVAC system upgrades such as variable frequency drives, economizers, programmable thermostats, mini splits, and a variety of HVAC systems
  • Refrigerator Systems such as ECM fan motors, refrigerator doors, door gaskets, strip curtains, auto closers, anti-sweat door films and night covers for display cases
  • Solar reduction window film to lower energy usage and improve comfort
