Green Business Certification Program


DRG3 - View an Example Project


Here is an example of the kind of assistance Green Certified Businesses can receive from Dayton Power & Light (DP&L):

A food-processing facility seeking Green Certification obtains an ASHRAE Level 1 energy audit.  The audit is performed and/or verified by a Professional Engineer (PE), or a Certified Energy Manager (CEM).  The cost of the audit is $10,000.

 1)  Upon completion of the audit, DP&L reimburses the customer
 (or 50% of the audit cost).

See Commercial Energy Audit Assistance

Two of the electric energy saving recommendations in the audit were to upgrade the facility’s compressed air system and replace the facility’s exterior HID lighting with LED lighting. Both projects are eligible for DP&L Business Rebates. The installed cost of the compressed air upgrade is $45,000.  The installed cost of the lighting upgrade is $12,000.  The company applies for DP&L Rapid and Custom Rebates online.

2)  Compressed air system's standard Custom Rebate value: $16,000
DRG3 enhanced rebate value: $22,500 (max. 50% of project cost)

     Lighting upgrade standard Rapid Rebate value: $1,200
DRG3 enhanced rebate value: $1,800 (max. 150% of stated rebate

3)  Because the customer implemented measures from the audit in excess of the cost of the
     audit, DP&L will also reimburse the customer
an additional $2,500 of their audit,
     which hits the maximum rebate value of
$7,500 for energy audit assistance.

That comes to a total of $31,800 in rebates for energy efficiency upgrades!
