Healthcare Energy Efficiency Program (HEEP)


The Healthcare Energy Efficiency Program (HEEP) program offers customized engineering solutions that are focused on improving the energy performance of healthcare facilities including clinics, hospitals, laboratories, assisted living centers, nursing homes and medical office buildings.

  • Cash incentives for eligible measures
  • Free technical services, as necessary

Retro-Commissioning Program (RCx)

Improve energy efficiency on existing commercial buildings, including manufacturing facilities, hospitals, educational campuses, retail stores, with CenterPoint Energy’s Retro-Commissioning Program (RCx). A technical energy analysis is performed on your facility at NO cost to Owner, by a qualified RCx agent.  Existing facilities should be at least 50,000 square feet of air-conditioned space.  Facilities should have a higher than average energy consumption.  Projects must be completed by approved project deadlines.

Customers must install, at their own cost, specified low cost measures to reduce operating and energy costs (HVAC temperature reset, outside air reduction, optimize HVAC start-up, lighting, add VFD’s, etc.)
