Southwest Gas Corporation - Commercial Energy Audit Program

January 03, 2013


Southwest Gas Corporation (SWG) offers the Commercial Energy Audit Program to customers in Nevada who have an energy audit performed on a qualifying facility. The program helps large commercial and industrial customers bring down the energy costs associated with operating a larger facility. This program may be helpful to customers whose large facility meets any of the following criteria: a facility which is ten years or older, a facility with single pane windows, equipment which needs to be replaced or tuned-up, or facilities with no existing energy manger. After an initial audit, additional rebates are available for boilers, steam upgrades, equipment controls, tune-ups and custom measures.
