Big impact, big savings for small businesses.

Dominion Energy is here 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 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.

Benefits Include:

  • 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.

  • Has privately-owned businesses with 5 or fewer locations.
  • Has not exceeded a monthly demand of 100 kilowatts 3 or more times in the past 12 months.
  • Is responsible for the electric bill.
  • Is the owner of the facility or reasonably able to secure permission to complete the measures
