Berkshire Gas - Commercial Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

December 02, 2015


Berkshire Gas Company (BCG) provides rebates for its commercial and industrial customers to pursue energy efficient improvements to their facilities. As a part of their energy efficiency program, BCG offers no-cost walk through energy audits. If the customer decides to make any of the improvements recommended by the audit, BCG will cover up to 50 percent of the cost of the implemented energy saving measures.  

Berkshire Gas Company also offers rebates for certain high efficiency heating equipment and other energy-saving upgrades. Eligible technologies include: Furnaces, boilers, infrared heating systems, water heaters, programmable thermostats, and high efficiency cooking equipment. Rebates range from $25 to $10,000 depending on equipment type. Projects that will exceed 5 units or $25,000 in rebates must be pre-approved by BGC.  Furthermore, all equipment must meet energy efficiency standards that are listed on the program website.  Visit the website listed above, or contact BGC directly for more information.
