Demand & Energy Efficiency Program (DEEP) provides funds, up to
$100,000 annually per customer, to commercial customers who implement
energy-saving measures that will reduce their summer peak electric
demands. Projects are evaluated by Edmond Electric and Oklahoma
Municipal Power Authority (OMPA) staff, on a case-by-case basis, and
funds available for an individual project are determined through
submission of detailed project plans.
A customer must meet the following qualifications in order for a project to be considered for approval:
Must submit a completed DEEP Application prior to the start of your project
Facility for proposed work is in Oklahoma and served by Edmond Electric
Load must be classified as either commercial or industrial by Edmond Electric
Load must be normally operated during summer billing period of June through September
Be willing to invest as much or more than OMPA will commit to a proposed project
City owned facilities may also qualify for program participation
Approved projects may be any project where any piece of electric equipment is planned to be replaced with a higher energy efficient electrical piece of equipment that has a lower energy demand. Opportunities for DEEP projects may exist in the areas of lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, commercial food service equipment, pumps and motors.
