What is Dominion Power’s Non-Residential Window Film Program?
The Non-Residential Window Film program promotes the
installation of window film to customers interested in lowering
their cooling bills and improving tenant comfort. Customers can
receive rebates for installing qualified solar reduction window
film in non-residential facilities.
What are the benefits?
Installation of window film on your facility’s windows can
significantly lower the solar radiation admitted through the
windows, offering many benefits including:
• Lowering energy bills through improved HVAC efficiency
• Improving tenant comfort
What is the rebate amount that my customers will earn?
Qualifying non-residential customers will receive a rebate
for installing window film, based on the improvement in Solar
Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).
Customers may authorize payment of the rebate to the contractor
to offset their out-of-pocket expenses or receive a check from
If you are a Property Owner or Manager this is good news.
Here is how it works:
Arvia Glass Coatings comes to the potential project site to
discuss the best window film to reduce your energy bills and
Arvia will measure free of charge the windows being considered
and calculate the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient reduction amount
that would occur by installing the film.
We fill in the "Virginia Non-Residential Window Film Rebate
Application" and send the form in to Dominion to be accepted.
Dependent on the type of glass and film being considered the
rebate (paid as a check) will be 45, 65 or 85 cents per square
foot of window film installed. This part of the process is at no
cost to you!!!
SHGC Improvement Incentive per Sq Ft
> .4 $0.85 .3 to .4 $0.65 .2 to < .3 $0.45
Once Dominion VA Power accepts your application you have up to 6
months to complete the project. In the meantime we can calculate
how soon your investment will take to pay back with and without
the rebate - Typically 1 - 3 years.

How the Rebate Works:
After purchasing window film, Dominion Power commercial
customers will be eligible to receive a one-time rebate that
corresponds with efficiency of the film purchased. Check out the
three-tier chart below based on the overall improvement of the
performance of the glass after we apply the film to help you
calculate your potential savings!
Solar Heat Gain Coefficient Model –
Running the Numbers:
To show you how significant the savings can be, here is an
Arvia Glass Coatings installed approximately 10,000 sq ft of
solar window film on a hospital building in Hampton Roads. The
calculated energy savings were 20K which had a pay back on
investment of just under 2 years. When adding the check from the
Dominion window film rebate program the pay back or return on
investment was 1.5 years.
There has never been a better time to lower the Solar Heat Gain
Coefficient on your building.
Purchasing window solar control film will not only get you a
rebate, but it will also save you money on energy consumption in
the long run!
A lot of commercial buildings have inefficient glass. Most of us
want to do additional energy saving measures, but just don’t
know about the significant benefits of solar control film which
has an SPF of 250+. Dominion Power’s rebate program offers
significant overall savings that can benefit everyone. Get a
