About custom incentives
High-efficiency equipment that falls outside the scope of our standard prescriptive offers may still be eligible for incentives. Whether you're installing lighting controls, upgrading air control systems or implementing other energy efficient technologies, incentives through our Custom Programs can help you offset up-front capital and reduce operating costs. See the program application (PDF) and applicable terms and conditions (PDF) for complete eligibility guidelines.
Natural gas custom projects
Examples of eligible projects include domestic water heating systems, outside air control, insulation, duct sealing, grain dryers, demand control ventilation, ozone laundries and window replacements. All CenterPoint Energy business customers with CenterPoint Energy natural gas service served under rates 120, 125, 220 and 225 qualify.
Electric custom projects
Examples of eligible projects include refrigeration upgrades, outside air control, changes in air distribution/zoning, exterior lighting controls, custom lighting projects, advanced interior lighting controls and electric heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) projects. All CenterPoint Energy business customers with CenterPoint Energy electric service qualify. CenterPoint Energy customers who have elected to opt out of participating in CenterPoint Energy's energy efficiency programs are not eligible.
