Receive financial incentives for your energy-efficient design decisions. 

When you make informed decisions on energy-efficient design options that exceed the efficiency standards of a code-constructed building1, you and your clients benefit from financial savings year over year. Best of all, you can take advantage of available incentives to make your project more cost-effective!


Lower the cost of implementing energy-efficient strategies. The incentive amount is based on the annual electric savings as modeled and verified-as-installed by FirstEnergy Pennsylvania electric companies.

Design Teams

Use incentives to offset design team time associated with program participation.


1Due to the adoption of IECC 2018 by Pennsylvania’s Uniform Construction Code on Feb 14, 2022, FirstEnergy Pennsylvania electric companies (Met Ed, Penelec, Penn Power, West Penn Power) will be updating the Commercial New Construction (CNC) and Custom Building Improvements Assistance (CBI) programs energy efficiency baseline evaluation criteria beginning June 1, 2022 to reflect this change. Applications for new construction and/or major renovation projects that are submitted to FirstEnergy Pennsylvania electric companies program and permitted after June 1, 2022 will utilize IECC 2018 as baseline for evaluation of energy efficiency savings.
