We’re here to help you build a better future for your business. Our energy saving solutions help improve everything from your business’s ambiance to customer reviews all while lowering monthly overhead expenses.

Small Business

From bakeries to banks, we help all types of small businesses become more energy-efficient. Our Small Business Program can help you cut energy costs and put those savings back into your business. The program includes:

Discounts and Incentives
We can help you reduce your energy costs and improve your ability to serve your customers with a variety of incentives and programs. These include up to 60 percent off lighting upgrades, lighting occupancy sensors, site specific custom projects and custom refrigeration measures.

Flexible Payment Plans
Eligible customers can have their share of the costs placed on their monthly electric bill for up to 12 months. Or you can pay in one lump sum (and we’ll discount your amount due by 5 percent).

To get started, schedule a no-cost energy assessment that will help us determine what energy-saving solutions are best for your business. Schedule your assessment online or call 1-800-332-3333.

Customer Directed Option (CDO)
National Grid offers a “Customer-Directed Option” (CDO) as a part of the Small Business Direct Install program in Upstate New York. Qualifying small businesses can reduce energy costs and improve their ability to serve their customers by choosing their own contractor to install targeted energy efficiency measures through the program.  Incentives are available to help reduce the cost of the installation of qualified energy efficient equipment, as well as financing options for the remaining share of the cost.

In order to qualify, you must:

  • Be an active National Grid electric customer
  • Pay the System Benefits Charge (SBC)
  • Have an average annual peak demand under 110 KW
  • Have an electric rate code of SC2 or SC2D
  • Cannot have received an incentive from NYSERDA for the same measure.

Retrofit projects only; building renovations and new construction projects are not eligible.

Contact the CDO Regional Program Administrator (CDO RPA) at 844-276-7898 or to determine eligibility.
