Custom Program

Custom Savings for Your Custom Project

Appalachian Power offers cash incentives for energy efficiency improvements for large Commercial & Industrial (C&I) customers. This brand-new Custom Program from TakeChargeVA provides financial incentives specifically tailored to the needs of C&I customers. If you can think of a project at your facility that will save electricity, we’re interested to hear about it! We also want to work with you to see how much energy and money you can save and provide incentives to help with the cost of the project.

Many different projects are eligible for incentives. Lighting projects are incentivized at $0.04/kWh, and non-lighting projects are incentivized at $0.09/kWh. This means that you can boost your bottom line, make your facility safer, and save money with the Custom Program.
