New Construction Initiative

The New Construction & Major Renovations program offers incentives, ideas, and expertise for projects of all sizes. Rhode Island Energy offers a range of paths and options based on building size and energy goals. Technical assistance is available to identify options for exceeding energy code. Incentives are available to offset the incremental construction cost and design service costs associated with the inclusion of energy efficient systems. Engage as early as possible (conceptual or schematic design phases) to take advantage of the widest range of options. 

Eligible Entities: All Rhode Island State Agencies, Municipalities, Public Schools (including Public Colleges and Universities), and Quasi-State agencies, are eligible for this program. Interested participants are encouraged to start with a no-cost facility energy audit.
