Building Electrification Rebates

Overview

Attention commercial heat pump contractors! For a limited time contractors will receive a bonus that is equal to the standard equipment rebate of the installed equipment. This will apply to for a company’s first 10 rebated installs with the Denver Building Electrification Rebate program. Equipment must be installed between 05/01/2024 and 2/28/2025. Bonuses do not apply to heat pumps installed with Home Energy Rebates.

The city has multiple rebates to help those considering building electrification. Replacing air conditioning and/or aging gas-fired systems with electric heat pumps creates better outcomes for occupants, owners, and the climate.

I know I want to electrify my building!

If you know you want to electrify your air conditioning, furnace, or water heating equipment and feel comfortable with your options, the Equipment Rebate would be the best option for you. These rebates directly offset a portion of the cost to install electric heat pumps in your building. Rebates are currently available for:

  • Heat pump rooftop units (HP RTUs)
  • Split air-source heat pumps (ASHPs)
  • Mini-split air-source heat pumps (mini-splits)
  • Heat pump water heaters
  • Packaged terminal heat pumps (PTHPs)
  • Variable refrigerant flow (VRF) systems

I am curious about building electrification, but I'm not sure if it's right for me.

If you are still not sure about converting your building equipment to electric alternatives, you may find value in pursuing an Electrification Feasibility Report. The city offers rebates to cover the cost of this process. The Electrification Feasibility Report:

  • Gives you information about whether replacing your air conditioner or gas-fired heating equipment with a heat pump is cost-effective compared to a like-for-like replacement.
  • Serves as one of the options you can use to meet a permitting requirement when pulling a permit to install gas-fired space or water heating equipment.

I am curious about building electrification, but I'm not seeing the equipment rebate I need.

Consider applying for the Building Electrification Pilot Program if you are interested in upgrading your air conditioning system, furnace, or hot water heater to a heat pump, but you either:

  • Don't see an Equipment Rebate that will work for you OR
  • Aren't sure about which Equipment Rebate is right for you

This program will help you:  

  • Assess opportunities for electrification in your building.
  • Choose appropriate equipment replacements.
  • Assess price quotes and scopes of work from contractors.
  • Offset the costs of assessing and installing electric equipment.
  • Identify additional rebates and financing.

Please note that there are limited spots in our Pilot Program. 

I own a house or small multifamily building and I want to investigate heat pumps.

That's great! You should check out the Home Energy Rebate Program, which is designed for single family and small multifamily homes.

I still don't know what to do.

If you are unsure which program is right for you, please reach out to Michaels Energy, our electrification program administrator, at DenverElectrification@MichaelsEnergy.com or 720.782.7661. They will be happy to assist you. 

Equipment Rebates

Attention commercial heat pump contractors! For a limited time contractors will receive a bonus that is equal to the standard equipment rebate of the installed equipment. This will apply to for a company’s first 10 rebated installs with the Denver Building Electrification Rebate program. Equipment must be installed between 05/01/2024 and 2/28/2025. Bonuses do not apply to heat pumps installed with Home Energy Rebates.

  • Split air source heat pumps
  • Mini-split heat pumps
  • Heat pump hot water heaters
  • Heat pump roof top units 
  • Packaged terminal heat pumps
  • Variable refrigerant flow systems

You do not have to complete an Electrification Feasibility Report to take part in this program. But you may choose to if you’re not sure whether heat pump equipment makes sense for you.

Application preapproval is required prior to equipment installation.

Electrification Pilot Program

The Building Electrification Pilot Program will help you understand the costs, benefits, and barriers to installing electric heat pump technology in your building. We'll walk you through the process from start to finish and cover any cost difference between the gas and electric system types. We are still accepting a limited number of applications for the pilot program. We are especially interested in working with Equity Priority Buildings, and/or hospitals, hotels, and schools at this time. If you own one of these building types, we encourage you to apply today!

This program will help you: 

This pilot funding will cover:

  • The cost of the Electrification Feasibility Report
  • At least the difference in cost between an electric system and a gas system

The pilot program may cover up to 100% of the costs to install the electric system. Denver reserves the right to cap equipment rebates included in the pilot at:

Preapproval is required.

The electrification requirements apply to all existing commercial and multifamily buildings regulated by the Denver Energy Code’s Commercial Provisions. This includes commercial buildings, multifamily apartment buildings, and multifamily condominium buildings. Single family dwellings, two-family dwellings, and townhomes are not subject to these electrification requirements.

Electrification Feasibility Report Rebates

The Electrification Feasibility Report is a tool designed to assess the practicality and cost impacts of switching from gas to electric equipment. It is one of several options customers and contractors can submit to meet Community Planning and Development’s building code permitting requirements for like-for-like system replacement. If you know you want to electrify your space or water heating equipment, you do not have to complete an Electrification Feasibility Report. You should instead jump straight to the Equipment Rebates.

Start your Application

Applicants that prefer to apply using a Spanish language application can find one here: Spanish Application(PDF, 408KB). Complete the application and send it via email to DenverElectrification@michaelsenergy.com or by mail to Michaels Energy, Attn: Denver Building Electrification Pilot, 400 Main Street, Suite 200, La Crosse, WI, 54601. If you need help completing the application, please give us a call at 970-209-8284 and leave a message.

Process

  1. Fill out an application indicating one piece of equipment to look at with an Electrification Feasibility Report.
  2. Michaels Energy, the program administrator, will review and preapprove your application within 10 business days.
  3. Select a contractor who has completed an Electrification Feasibility Report training.
  4. Work with your contractor to complete and submit the Electrification Feasibility Report.
  5. The program administrator will review and approve the completed Electrification Feasibility Report within 10 business days.
  6. The contractor will invoice the program administrator for the cost of the Electrification Feasibility Report.
  7. The program will pay up to $2,500 to the contractor to cover the cost of the Electrification Feasibility Report. Contractors are not permitted to invoice customers for any remaining balance.  

 

Building owners are not required to follow the recommendations that come from an Electrification Feasibility Report. However, there will be changes coming in 2025 and 2027 that will require the electrification of systems when it’s cost-effective for replacements. It may be beneficial to electrify where it makes sense now.
