I’m going to be sharing responses to our frequently asked questions we receive here at Sports Interiors to offer some insight into our approach to improving the indoor tennis playing experience. To begin with, one of the most frequently asked questions we receive is about the world of rebates. Rebates or financial incentives are offered throughout the country for implementing energy efficient lighting as well as for installing insulation for HVAC savings. The Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency (DSIRE) is a great resource for understanding policies and incentives by state and specific rebate program. Unfortunately, no two rebate programs are the same, and the pre-approval process can be rather cumbersome depending on program requirements. However, Sports Interiors has established connections with dozens of rebate programs across the country and has a designated team handling the entire process for our customers. We handle all the legwork to secure funding whether it’s for implementing energy efficient lighting or insulation behind our Liner System. Initially, we request a copy of a monthly utility bill where we then connect with the rebate program to understand what is being offered for incentives. Commonly, requirements include submitting a W9 and filling out an online calculator depending on the program. Further, the pre-approval process could include certain documentation and/or an on-site visit by a rebate program representative. Although, we have worked with several rebate programs where there isn’t much required in the form of a pre-approval process prior to implementation of our Systems.
If you’re considering upgrades or renovations to your facility, feel free to send us a utility bill as we’d be happy to investigate what rebates are available. Some of the incentives we’ve encountered can quite dramatically offset the investment of implementing proven Systems. Contact us if you’d like to discuss this further.
