The incentives are linked directly to savings. Incentive #1 is capped at $40,000 to help defray the cost of the Energy Reduction Plan. Incentives #2 and #3 are capped at $200,000 or 50% of project cost on a per project basis. There is an annual entity cap of $500,000 where entity is defined as a single building owner (municipality, private business, school administrative unit, etc.).
To be selected for the P4P program, Harriman needed to demonstrate extensive experience designing and implementing comprehensive energy-efficiency programs.
"Harriman has been designing energy-efficient buildings in New Hampshire for years," says firm President Clif Greim. We're excited that we're now able to bring incentives to clients for making energy-efficient improvements that will ultimately lower their energy costs for many years to come."
The Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction Fund consists of proceeds from the auction of carbon allowances through New Hampshire's participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), an effort by 10 Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic states to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from the electric power sector.
Harriman provides architecture and engineering design services for education, healthcare, corporate, government, and retail clients throughout New England from offices in Manchester, New Hampshire, and Portland and Auburn, Maine.
