TCVs No Longer Required!

Thursday, April 23, 2015

TCVs No Longer Required!

As of April 15, 2015, Thermostatic Control Valve (TCV) installation is no longer a requirement and has been changed to "highly recommended."  TCVs are no longer a required measure for all projects (either new or in the pipeline with incentives not issued). 

Depending on the status of your project please follow the steps below:

New project submissions: TCVs on a new project submission will not be required, but highly recommended.

Project Under Construction: If TCVs are already installed, please complete fields within VisionDSM. If TCVs are not going to be installed you don't need to include them.

Post-Retrofit Submission Completed: The program team will not delay the incentive approval for TCV issues.
