Dominion is here to help your small business keep costs down while also meeting your sustainability goals. A Small Business Improvement 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 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 facility 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 the your installation costs will be refunded to you.

The energy assessment provides you with many benefits:

  • Access to pre-qualified contractors who can perform both the assessment and the recommended improvements
  • An on-site analysis of your business’s energy use
  • A report containing cost-effective options and easy-to-follow recommendations to help reduce energy usage
  • Assessment and improvements scheduled at your convenience
  • Financial incentives that help to offset cost for installing the recommended improvements

Areas included in assessment:

  • Direct Install Lighting
  • Variable Frequency Drives
  • Efficient Heat Pumps
  • Efficient Air Conditioning Units
  • Prescriptive Re-commissioning
