Commercial and Light Industrial Rebate Programs Shift Energy Use to Off-Peak Hours without Loss of Service

Breakthrough Hybrid Cooling solutions that reduce electric bills, improve energy efficiency, provide superior cooling comfort and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

By combining conventional air conditioning systems with Ice Energy’s ground-breaking energy storage technology, hybrid cooling saves money and lessens the impact on the environment.

Ongoing savings come from shifting air conditioning electric load from expensive peak daytime rates to cheaper off-peak nighttime rates, while incentives are paid based on the total kilowatts permanently shifted from peak to off-peak times.

Ice Energy's Hybrid Air Conditioning Products

Ice Energy’s flagship Ice Bear® Hybrid Air Conditioning products provide superior cooling comfort for homes and businesses, using only a fraction of the energy required by conventional systems, and surpassing the overall efficiency of conventional equipment alone.

Utility Companies Offer Rebates to Go Off-Peak

Some utilities now offer special incentives that significantly offset the costs of off-peak system installation and equipment.

Rebates, in combination with electricity bill savings, can provide rapid payback and generate ongoing cash flow for business and commercial establishments in participating utility company regions.

By taking advantage of available financing, Hybrid A/C can be cash flow positive from the first month – with little or no money down.

Anaheim Public Utilities Thermal Energy Storage Incentive

Hybrid cooling by qualifying commercial customers can receive up to $21,000 in financial incentives for the purchase and installation of Ice Bear hybrid cooling systems (based on the age and size of each air conditioning unit to which a system is applied).

Plus, businesses can save $1,000s more in additional ongoing savings through exclusive time-of-use rates for light commercial and industrial buildings specifically designed to provide savings for shifting energy use away from peak times of day. ESTIMATED SAVINGS $21,000 in financial incentives for the purchase and installation

PG&E Shift and Save Program

PG&E's Shift & Save program helps reduce California's rolling blackouts and improves the reliability of the power grid by reducing peak energy demand.

The $10 million program, part of the California Public Utility Commission’s permanent load shifting initiative, offers both upfront rebates and annual incentives to PG&E commercial and light industrial customers for integrating hybrid cooling with existing and new air conditioning equipment.

Unlike demand response solutions, which reduce the peak load only on specific days when the power grid is at risk of overload, Shift & Save helps to permanently reduce daily AC peak loads over the entire peak season, while helping PG&E customers lower their energy bills. ESTIMATED SAVINGS The total potential payment for new construction /kW shifted is $1,400 and $1,950 for retrofit applications.

SCE Night Shift Program

Cash rebates and incentives are available to customers in Southern California interested in making the shift to hybrid cooling through Southern California Edison’s innovative Night Shift permanent load shift program.

Night Shift is for mid-commercial customers who have buildings with 3 to 20-ton rooftop air-conditioner units and an electricity demand of at least 200 kilowatt-hours per day. Facilities that fit this profile typically include office buildings, libraries, school and university buildings, and big box retail stores.

Rebates, in combination with monthly savings on electric bills provide a rapid return on investment, making it possible for companies to dramatically lower air conditioning costs without sacrificing comfort.
