- Maximum of $40,000 per building
- The maximum contribution to an organization or group of affiliates is $200,000 per fiscal year (April 1 to March 31)
Eligible project expenditures include salaries and benefits, professional, scientific, and technical fees specific to the energy management system, fees for data collection, benchmarking and analysis services, purchasing metering equipment, as well as other expenditures directly related to the project.
