National Grid - Commercial Energy Efficiency Programs

July 22, 2008


National Grid's Commercial Energy Efficiency Program provides support services and incentives to commercial customers who install energy efficient natural gas related measures. All firm commercial and firm transportation rate customers are eligible to participate. Prescriptive rebates are available for common energy efficiency measures installed after the completion of an energy audit, including:

  • Programmable thermostats
  • Boiler reset controls
  • Steam trap replacements
  • Pipe/duct insulation
  • Building shell insulation
  • Windows

Custom Incentives are available for projects that demonstrate the use of natural gas more efficiently than industry practices and/or more efficiently than the minimum building code requirements. Incentives are available covering up to a maximum of 50% of project costs, capped at $100,000 per site and/or per project. Custom incentives are classified as either Level One ($0.75 per first year of estimated therm savings) or Level Two ($1.50 per first year of estimated therm savings).
