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. The average program rebate is $2,100, and rebates are calculated based on the improvement in Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).

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 have a demand of 10 megawatts or less and have not opted out of participation. Customers must be responsible for their own electric bill and either be the owner of the building, or be able to secure permission from the building owner to complete the 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

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.
