Yes. However, incentives cannot be paid out for the same measure at the same customer site. If a potential double dipping flag occurs, the program may reach out for supplemental information to help clarify that no double dipping has occurred.

Incentive rates are subject to change, and the program will provide a 30-day notice in advance to program partners when incentives change.
