National Grid (Gas) - Commercial Energy Efficiency Rebate Programs (Metro New York)

April 19, 2023


 National Grid’s Business Energy Efficiency Program provides support services and incentives to commercial customers who install energy efficient natural gas related measures. All firm commercial rate customers are eligible to participate. Prescriptive rebates are available for common energy efficiency measures installed after the completion of an energy audit, including: natural gas heating measures, thermostats, boiler reset controls, steam trap replacements, pipe/duct insulation, and kitchen equipment. 

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 or Level Two depending on size and complexity of the project. Customers should refer to their website to see what kinds of projects qualify for each level.

National Grid will also finance 50% (up to $10,000) of the cost incurred as part of an approved energy efficiency engineering study. The study must be completed by a certified energy manager or professional engineer.
