TEP Trade Affiliate Program

TEP Trade Affiliates support and assist qualified large commercial and industrial customers with their energy efficiency upgrades to help them qualify for rebate incentives offered through our Custom and New Construction programs, administered by Franklin Energy.


Many times, commercial customers need to rely on reputable experts to design and plan their project or specify products. They also need assistance with the application process to secure funds through our Custom and New Construction programs. These programs are open to commercial customers on select rate plans.

TEP invites third-party rebate administrators, contractors, vendors of products and services, engineers, architects and other industry professionals to become a TEP Trade Affiliate.

Approved Trade Affiliates are included on our resource list, which helps drive customers to your company for the services and products they need. Companies licensed by the State of Arizona also may serve as the installing contractor for these projects.

TEP provides training on our incentive programs and the application process to support these commercial customers, who may also utilize your company’s products or services.

Trade Affiliates are different from Trade Allies, which are approved contractors that install energy efficiency upgrades for schools and smaller businesses programs
