Retrofit to Give Tarlton $1m in Rebates
The project includes the installation of building efficiency controls and a lighting retrofit at the 47-acre, 13-building business park.
Progressive, in participation with Pacific Gas & Electric, secured funding through a combination of third party programs from RightLights, California High Performance Lighting Program, PG&E’s Express Efficiency Program and Automated Demand Response Technical Incentives.
In total Tarlton Properties will garner over $1 million in rebates and technical incentives, Progressive said. Tarlton should realize annual utility bill savings of more than $400,000, with an annual return on investment of over 20 percent.
