The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) recently launched a new program, called the Retrofit Energy & Capacity Program (RECAP), designed to encourage its customers to implement energy efficiency upgrades. The RECAP program makes it possible for LIPA customers to reduce the cost of planned upgrades by as much as 30% by funding a portion of the upgrade cost.
LIPA selected a small number of Energy Services Companies, (ESCOs), to handle the management, marketing, and implementation of the incentive dollars being offered. The ESCOs have in some cases turned to a network of local specialist trade allies to help develop and implement energy efficiency projects, including lighting, HAVOC, motors, variable frequency drives, and more.
