New Construction


Get incentives to build energy efficiency into your next project.

Commercial buildings consume nearly 20% of the nation’s energy and cost businesses more than $190 billion each year.* That’s why, in the United States, nearly half of all new nonresidential construction projects, by value, are energy-efficient, green buildings. Don’t get left behind.

Given the average lifespan, your new building or major renovation will stand for the next 50 to 100 years. That means you have an important opportunity to get it right from the start by surpassing standard practices and exceeding energy code requirements.

Our comprehensive building modeling services, available at no cost to you, can help you start saving on operating costs from day one. PECO incentives cover whole building systems, as well as interior and exterior lighting, for new construction and major renovation projects.

See a complete list of financial incentives available for your business.
