Is your business a CPA customer and interested in buying a battery storage unit? There is a program for you!
Battery energy storage is technology that can either be paired with solar panels or used alone to store energy during the day when it is less expensive and discharge it in the evening when energy from the grid is more expensive. Battery storage can help you save on energy and demand charges and can also allow you to participate in the CPA Power Response program to earn rewards.
The CPA Power Response program serves medium-to-large commercial and industrial customers who have invested or are about to invest in clean energy technologies like battery storage and electric vehicle chargers. They are excited to announce that there are now financial incentives available for your business to apply toward the direct installation costs of a battery storage system.
The maximum incentives range from $25,000-35,000 depending on the customer’s investment tax credit eligibility status and can be combined with Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP) funds to pay for approximately 50% or more of the cost of a battery storage unit, depending on system size. 
The Direct Install Program eligibility requirements, application, and a helpful handbook can be found on CPA’s website. The first round of applications is due by June 29, 2020 and will target systems that can be installed and operational by May 30, 2021. There will be a second round of applications in fall of 2020.
