Non-Residential Window Film Program

Dominion Energy Virginia's Non-Residential Window Film Program promotes the installation of solar reduction window film to customers interested in lowering their cooling bills and improving overall comfort. Rebates are calculated based on the improvement in Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).

Program Closure Notice

The Virginia State Corporate Commission approval period for this program is expiring. If your project has an estimated rebate amount of $10,000 or more, an initial assessment must have been submitted by October 26, 2018 and received approval before any work can be initiated. In no case will projects be rebated without a confirmation from Honeywell.

Benefits of Participation

Installation of window film on your non-residential facility’s windows can significantly lower the solar radiation admitted through the windows. According to data provided by the International Window Film Association (IWFA), this offers many benefits including:

  • Reducing annual energy usage by 4.7%
  • Blocking 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays from entering through windows while protecting your employees, customers and furniture/furnishings from damaging effects caused by the sun
  • Improving tenant comfort by blocking up to 84% of solar energy (heat) gain admitted through windows that would normally pass through untreated glass, while reducing cooling costs through improved HVAC efficiency
  • Reducing disruptive glare and the need for interior lighting after closing blinds and drapes to block the sun’s excessive UV rays
  • You can receive a return on your investment in 2-5 years, depending on the window film tint installed and the building's existing attributes
  • You may authorize payment of the rebate to the contractor to offset the out-of-pocket expenses

Eligibility

This program is open to Dominion Energy Virginia non-residential customers who are not exempt by statute, not under special contract, have not elected to opt-out of paying the DSM rider, are responsible for the electric bill, and are the owner of the facility or reasonably able to secure permission to complete measures.

Rebate Details

Qualifying non-residential customers will receive a rebate for installing window film, based on the improvement in Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).

SHGC Improvement Incentive per Square Foot
> .4 $0.85
.3 to .4 $0.65
.2 to < .3 $0.45

Final SHGC level after film installation must be ≤ .4 in order to be eligible for rebate, utilizing the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) rating. Newly installed film must include a manufacturer’s warranty of at least 10 years.

Please allow up to 90 days from the date all required information is received to process your rebate. Payment will be issued to the account holder and mailing address on record with Dominion Energy – unless the customer has authorized the rebate to be paid to the contractor.

It is the responsibility of the customer to assure that all requirements for the rebate are met. Failure to provide any of the required information will delay processing of your application and could result in non-payment.

Upon submission of your rebate, an email will be sent to the email address provided on the rebate form confirming the rebate has been submitted for processing. If you have questions, please call 1-888-366-8280.
