Holy Cross offering bonus for small businesses
Holy Cross Energy is offering a $500 bonus to small businesses willing to make an investment in becoming more energy efficient.
Small businesses that sign up for an audit in August and complete an electric saving project with a minimum investment of $1,000 by Oct. 31 will receive a $500 bonus. The offer is limited to businesses that have never had an energy audit.
The audit consists of a one-hour walk through of the business to explore possible savings on utility bills. The audit also involves educating business owners on Smart Hub, which provides a way to look at kilowatt-hour usage.
Holy Cross hopes the promotion will help small businesses that may be on the fence about upgrading to efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems and efficient fan motors.
“We have rebate money and hope the August bonus will spark interest with small business owners to move forward with energy upgrades,” said Mary Wiener, energy efficiency program administrator for Holy Cross.
The promotion is available to the first 20 small businesses that sign up. So far, eight businesses have started the process, according to Wiener.
To sign up, businesses should contact Wiener at email@example.com or 970-947-5432.
