K–12 Schools Program Process

The UniSource Business Energy Solutions team has simplified and streamlined the process for qualifying schools to participate in the program.

Process Overview

  1. Select a contractor from our list of Trade Allies.
  2. The contractor will provide an overview of the Program. The customer and the contractor will agree on the work to be done and the contractor will identify the upgrades that qualify for incentives.
  3. Submit a Pre-approval Application. Pre-approval is required on all projects prior to work beginning. Applications submitted for pre-approval will be reviewed for completeness and program eligibility. If approved, a notice of pre-approval will be sent and project funds will be reserved.
  4. Complete the work while meeting project specifications and program guidelines.
  5. Submit a completed and signed Final Application with all documentation and completed measure worksheets within 60 days of the project completion.
  6. Receive your incentive check within 6 weeks of Final Application approval.


All K–12 schools on commercial electric plans are eligible. For customers with multiple facilities, all their facilities must use one of the plans listed above for any projects to qualify for incentives.

Please refer to the Equipment Specifications for details about equipment that is eligible for incentives.
