Oncor provides incentives to service providers and self-sponsors who install eligible energy efficiency measures at facilities serviced by Oncor through their Commercial Standard Offer Program (CSOP). Independent companies/contractors are eligible to participate. The program is divided into deemed projects and measurement & verification projects. Deemed projects offer incentives to service providers who complete projects with deemed kilowatt and kilowatt-hour savings. Measurement & verification (M&V) projects offer incentives to service providers and self-sponsors who complete measures requiring measurement and verification. Oncor will pay service providers a fixed price per kilowatt and kilowatt-hour saved based on the estimate of useful life of the approved measure(s). There is a minimum savings of $500 for Deemed Savings projects and $10,000 for Measurement & Verification projects.
To receive an incentive, projects must improve system efficiency above current state and/or federal energy efficiency guidelines. Project incentives are capped at 50% of total project costs and 20% of the total CSOP incentive budget. Further details surrounding the CSOP Program can be found on the following PDF.
