Nonprofits Save Energy with Tax Exempt Customer Incentive (TEC) Program

Nonprofits and communities can reduce the barriers to becoming energy efficient that tax-exempt organizations face, with the help of technical assistance.

Generous incentives are available to local government entities, military, as well as public and private K-12 schools

The TEC program provides technical and administrative assistance, plus financial incentives to help these tax-exempt organizations implement energy efficiency measures.

The program reduces the barriers to becoming energy efficient that tax-exempt organizations face, including time, staffing, technical resources and funding. TEC provides the extra resources needed to take projects from concept to successful implementation.

The TEC program by the Center for Sustainable Energy, San Diego, can dramatically shorten the payback period and reduce greenhouse gasses (GHG) linked to climate change.

To be considered for TEC eligibility, projects must plausibly deliver at least 500,000 kWh or 25,000 Therms of annual energy savings. Some projects can be combined to meet this minimum energy savings requirement.

All energy efficiency measures must be retrofits or replacements of existing operating equipment. New construction, CFL’s, fuel-switching installations and cogeneration projects do not qualify.

For incentive rates and more information, call toll-free at 1-866-SDENERGY, send an email to , or go to the TEC website. Answer a few questions about your project or facility, discuss options and, if appropriate, schedule a free technical energy audit.

Qualified groups must submit new applications by August 30, 2009 (although by April 30, 2009 is recommended) and complete installations by December 31, 2009.

Originally a 2006-2008 cycle Cal. Public Utilities Commission funded program, CCSE’s Tax Exempt Customer Incentive (TEC) program has been extended through 2009 pursuant to the CPUC’s Bridge-Funding Decision.
