Dominion offers Virginia businesses rebates for window film installation. The Window Film (7/23, Flores) magazine reports that "Virginia commercial window tint companies and their clients alike have reason to be excited about Dominion Virginia Power's new Non-Residential Window Film Program." In an "effort to achieve greater levels of energy efficiency, the electric company is offering Virginia businesses that install window film to their existing windows a rebate." Ralph Joyce, energy conservation program manager with Dominion Virginia Power, is "hopeful the effort will help conserve energy for businesses across Virginia." Says Joyce, "Clearly, we believe window film can offer Dominion's non-residential customers lower cooling bills and improved comfort … We project about 2,000 non-residential customers to participate in the Window Film Program over its five year duration."
