RFMA 2019 Session Preview - Show me the Money: The Truth About Rebates and Incentives for Energy Projects  

Speakers: Andrew Hammen (GridPoint) and Anthony MacDonald (GridPoint)  
Utilities are giving millions of dollars back to restaurant customers for participating in programs designed to reduce peak demand. Popular programs include demand response, lighting retrofits, and HVAC efficiency. While this sounds like a win-win, there are many road blocks restaurant professionals come across while trying to participate. This session details how to determine the right program for your business, understand application requirements, minimize pain-points of redeeming your incentives, and how to reinvest your incentives to promote sustainability or corporate goals.
When: Tuesday, February 12th from 11:15AM – 12:00PM
