Financial Incentives

The Starting Point

The first step in increasing the number of Phius projects through policy is to provide monetary or policy incentives. These typically include providing funds to encourage developers to build to the Phius standard. The incentives can cover the cost of training and/or certification, and the actual cost of construction. State agencies providing incentives include the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center and the New York State Energy Research Development Authority (NYSERDA). Utilities include ComEd in Illinois and National Grid in Rhode Island.
