Direct Install Programs for Lighting, Refrigeration, HVAC, and Controls

Many states make cash incentives available to business owners for improving their facilities with more energy efficient equipment. These measures include a wide variety of indoor and outdoor LED lighting, along with refrigeration, controls, and HVAC measures. These Direct Install (DI) programs typically begin with a free energy assessment that help determine how much money could be saved by implementing these upgrades.
