NYSEG (Electric) - Commercial and Industrial Efficiency Program

July 14, 2022


NYSEG and RG&E offer rebates to non-residential customers installing energy efficient equipment that have an electricity Systems Benefits Charge (SBC) included in their energy bills. Both prescriptive rebates and custom incentives are available, and can be applied to retrofits, add-ons, major renovations and new construction.

Custom incentives are available when energy efficiency improvements require site-specific engineering and cost analysis. Any nonresidential NYSEG or RG&E electricity customer is eligible, and customers can select their own contractor to install equipment. See program site for further details on both custom and prescriptive rebates.
