Small Business Solutions

The Small Business Solutions Program can help you upgrade to energy-efficient equipment and save up to 80 percent on the project cost for most lighting, refrigeration, and smart thermostat retrofit projects — plus some related expenses.

We offer cash incentives to all SMECO commercial customers with a monthly demand of 60 kW or less over a 12-month period. So whether you own a convenience store, serve at a place of worship, or run a small family business, you can reduce your energy costs and enhance workplace comfort.
