With the National Fuel Conservation Incentive Program, non-residential customers can access money-saving rebates for installing energy efficient equipment. Once you factor in the money you will save annually by using energy more efficiently, high-efficiency appliances quickly pay for themselves.
Below is an example of how installing high energy-efficiency boilers could pay themselves off in a couple years.
|(Two) New 95% High-Efficiency, Condensing Boilers||$25,600|
|(Two) Standard 80% Efficiency Non-condensing Boilers||$18,000|
|Cost Difference for Higher-Efficiency Model||$7,600|
|One-Time Fixed Rebate||$3,000|
|Cost Difference after Rebate||$4,600|
|Annual Operating Cost Savings||$1,225*|
|Simple Payback on Cost for High-Efficiency Mode||2.8years**|
*This is only an example. Your actual investment and savings may be higher or lower depending on the model(s) you choose to install, the efficiency of the boiler(s) you are replacing, fluctuating fuel costs and actual cost of installation. Based on average gas costs of $0.67 per Ccf for the 12 months ending September 30, 2021.
**With savings on annual operating costs of $1,225 per year, the $4,600 incremental investment will be paid back in 2.8 years.
1. Fixed (Pre-qualified) Rebate — Available on pre-qualified equipment.
2. Customized (Performance-Based) Rebate — Determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the results of an energy-use analysis. Customized rebates are determined by multiplying the annual energy savings in Mcf by $15. This may result in a larger rebate than if your company received a fixed rebate.
*New construction projects are eligible for rebates. Rebate cap of $100,000 per project, per program year.

For both pre-qualified and performance-based applications, all appliances must be installed by a contractor. Non-residential customers applying for a rebate AND the contractor who performed the installation must be able to supply one of the following: Federal ID number, a Certificate of Insurance or a Business Certificate showing their company’s name and address in order for the rebate application to be considered complete. Rebates are available for equipment upgrades, as well as new builds. Rebate cap of $100,000 per project, per program year.
