Government Mandates

Utility companies such as gas and electric producers are mandated by the government to assist with increasing the proliferation of high-efficiency lighting and HVAC equipment. This is needed because the rate of increase in energy consumption in the United States is outpacing the rate of demand. If energy consumption were to exceed demand, our everyday lives would change rather dramatically.

Utility Bill Line Items

To reduce overall demand, utility companies provide incentives to businesses that replace old equipment with new high-efficiency products, or install high-efficiency products on new construction. Most states have enacted laws prior to 2010 and you can find the line item expense on your utility bill.
