Business Bucks FAQ
- All Burbank businesses with annual electricity usage below 250,000 kilowatt-hours are eligible to participate in this program. Any qualified business location is allowed to participate one time and receive funding up to their tiered incentive cap. Participants prior to July 2015 are eligible for a second round of funding, essentially doubling the location’s incentive cap. A change in tenancy or ownership does not re-qualify that location. The business must be served under a BWP commercial electric rate.
BWP provides eligible businesses with a free energy survey of their facility followed by up to $5,000 in retrofits that will reduce your organization’s energy use. If you elect to install measures above your Business Bucks limit, you can still use RHA’s installation services at BWP’s negotiated pricing. Your organization would only pay any cost above the Installation Incentive Cap, although you may also be eligible for a BWP rebate on your investment through our Business Rebate program.

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 up to the Incentive Cap for retrofits you select. You pay nothing, just reap the rewards of a more efficient building and reduced energy costs. Over one-third of all Burbank businesses have already taken advantage of this program, so join the ranks of those energy-wise facilities!
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 (877) 290-2590.
