Green Rebate Programs
Energy Efficiency Program

It's the most cost effective way to lower your business’ energy usage.

Premium Motor Incentives

Riverside Public Utilities knows commercial motors can be critical to your manufacturing process. We offer you incentives to help offset the costs of new, more efficient premium motors.

If you’re a manufacturer using older motors, we encourage you to purchase and install electric motors with the highest energy efficiency output needed for your business. Efficient premium motors produce savings worth far more than their purchase price for as long as you use them.



Qualifying Equipment:

1 to 200 horsepower National Electrical Manufacturers Association design A and B, three phase, integral horsepower, general purpose motors (1200,1800, 3600 RPM). The specifications for the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) levels can be found on the name plate of premium motors.
