Make the Most of Your Construction Budget to Lower Future Operating Costs

New Construction


To qualify for new construction rebates, buildings must be a new or current commercial electric customer of Estes Park Power & Communications, Fort Collins Utilities, Longmont Power & Communications or Loveland Water and Power. The new construction program also applies to major renovations. For the purposes of the Efficiency Works program, a major renovation includes at least three of the five criteria listed below:

  • The business is undertaking the project primarily due to a change in the use of the space, which requires changes to the lighting or HVAC systems. For example, warehouse space is being converted to office space.
  • The space being renovated will be unoccupied for 30 days or more.
  • Existing light fixtures are being removed and a new light scheme with with rewiring is the result.
  • The project requires a construction permit.
  • First time install of electric-operated equipment in which higher efficient models are available.
