National Grid, an electricity and gas company that connects consumers to energy sources, has launched an energy-efficiency program to support the design of high-performing commercial and industrial buildings in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. The New Construction Program provides professionals, including those involved with self-storage building design, construction, ownership or operation, with energy-saving resources, financial incentives and training designed to help lower building operating expenses, reduce emissions and optimize energy performance, according to a press release.
The program is open to most non-residential buildings, including commercial, industrial and institutional projects. It provides energy-efficiency support for new construction, major renovations and equipment replacement. Participating projects receive technical and design assistance as well as incentives for both owners and the design team, company officials said.
National Grid services also include a Whole Building Approach option for ground-up or major renovation projects that require collaboration between National Grid and the design team, as well as a Systems Approach option for equipment or single-system efficiency measures. More information on these programs can be obtained from the Trade Professionals area of the company website.
National Grid’s mission is to create new, sustainable energy solutions and develop an energy system that underpins economic prosperity, according to the release. The company serves more than 7 million gas and electricity customers in Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island. It also delivers gas and electricity across Great Britain.
