Prescriptive Program Change

Due to heavy program participation in 2015, the incentive budget has been depleted. As a result, in February 2016, BGE filed with the Public Service Commission to increase the prescriptive program budget to address the depleted prescriptive incentive budget due to heavy program participation in 2015. The Commission’s decision on BGE's request remains pending. Until additional funding becomes available, the following program change has been put into place.

Effective immediately:

  1. No prescriptive applications (new or existing), regardless of status, will be paid until additional funding is approved.
  2. All new applications will now require pre-approval regardless of the incentive amount.

Prescriptive applications include Retrofit Lighting, New Construction Performance Lighting, Unitary HVAC, Variable Frequency Drives, Chillers, Geothermal, Kitchen, Refrigeration, Appliance and Plug Load Equipment.

New Applications

As of April 20, 2016, all new applications, regardless of the incentives amount, must be pre-approved. BGE is continuing to accept new applications and will put them on a reservation list by date as they are received. Once additional funding is available, applications will be reviewed in the order in which they were received.

Any new prescriptive applications begun without pre-approval will be denied an incentive.

For incentives totaling less than $5,000, prescriptive applications did not need pre-approval prior to April 20, 2016. For applications with an equipment invoice date prior to April 20, 2016, BGE will accept prescriptive applications with incentives totaling less than $5,000 if they are submitted within 60 days of the invoice date; these accepted prescriptive applications will be reviewed and put on a waitlist to be processed for payment once additional funding is available. All applications for which we already do not have a submitted application with equipment purchased after April 20, 2016 will not be eligible for incentives.

Existing Applications

BGE will put all existing applications, regardless of status, on a waitlist:

  • Applications without pre-approval as of April 20 will not be reviewed and will be immediately put on the waitlist in "Application Received – On Hold" status. Once additional funding is available, applications will be processed in the order in which they were received. Any existing prescriptive application begun without pre-approval will be denied an incentive.
  • Previously pre-approved applications can finish installing their approved equipment and send BGE the completion documents for final review. They will be reviewed and upon approval put in "Final Project Approval Complete – Payment On Hold" status. Once additional funding is available, these applications will be processed in the order in which they were received.
  • Applications under $5,000 in incentives completed and submitted prior to April 20 will be reviewed and upon approval put in "Final Project Approval Complete – Payment On Hold" status. Once additional funding is available, these applications will be processed in the order in which they were received.

Payment of an incentive for existing prescriptive applications, regardless of status, is on-hold until additional funding is secured.*

*Applications that have already received a payment approval letter, indicating that a check will be sent in 6-8 weeks, will not be affected. The check will still arrive in 6 to 8 weeks.

The above changes do not affect any of the other BGE Energy Solutions for Business Program applications.
