Free Energy Use Surveys and up to $2,000 in Energy Efficiency Retrofits!
BWP is very pleased to offer Burbank businesses Business Bucks, an energy-saving program designed specifically for Burbank's smaller and mid-sized businesses.
Business Bucks has two parts to it. 1. BWP will send a certified resource manager to your facility to conduct a free energy survey, looking at lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration, motors and the building envelope. A short report will be generated listing recommended efficiency retrofits. Each recommendation will include the cost to perform the retrofit, anticipated annual energy savings, and simple payback. 2. Businesses can select recommendations they would like to install and BWP's certified installers will conduct that work at the facility. BWP will pay up to $2,000 for recommended retrofits selected without one penny being paid by the business!
BWP has hired Richard Heath and Associates (RHA) to run this program on our behalf. RHA can be reached at 877-290-2590 for more information on Business Bucks, including finding out if your business is eligible to participate.
Please read on for some frequently asked questions about Business Bucks.
Q. Who's eligible for Business Bucks?
Burbank businesses with monthly electricity costs falling in the range of about $100 to $3,000 are eligible to participate in this program. Please note that we are looking at electricity costs only and not any water, refuse, sewage and other costs.
Q. What does Business Bucks offer me?
BWP provides eligible businesses with a free energy survey of their facility followed by up to $2,000 in retrofits that will reduce your organization’s energy use. Your organization would pay any cost above the $2,000 limit, although you may also receive a BWP rebate on your out-of-pocket costs through our Energy Solutions cash rebate program.

Q. This sounds too good to be true. What's the catch?
There is no catch. The program is truly this good. BWP pays for the cost of the energy survey of your facility and BWP pays for the first $2,000 of retrofits you select. You pay nothing, just reap the rewards of a more efficient building and reduced energy costs.
Q. How do I sign up?
BWP can serve about 200 Burbank businesses annually with Business Bucks. We will help any eligible customer on a first come, first served basis. To find out if your organization is eligible to participate, simply call RHA at 1-877-290-2590.
