                         2010 ENERGY EFFICIENCY INCENTIVES
                          NEW COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION
Beginning in January 2010, CPS Energy incentives for new construction is based on a “whole building
performance” concept. To receive an incentive for energy efficiency, the building must be at least 15%
more efficient than the new building codes (IECC 2009) implemented in January 2010. The building
codes and related efficiency incentives were adopted from recommendations provided by a diverse
community stakeholder process and formalized by CoSA ordinance.

For buildings achieving more than the minimum 15% savings, the program has established three tiers of
performance, as follows:

      Tier 1: savings of 15-24.9% above code
      Tier 2: savings of 25-34.9% above code
      Tier 3: savings of 35% or greater above code

Savings are based on the total energy consumption for the building, including all fuel types, and are
typically calculated in British Thermal Units (BTUs), which allows for straightforward conversion from
fuel-specific energy units such as kilowatt-hours of electricity and CCF of natural gas.

Custom incentives are offered for eligible projects to help offset the additional design and construction
costs of achieving higher levels of energy efficiency. Incentive amounts are calculated individually for
each participating building based on the kWh and kW savings that the building achieves beyond code, as
