CenterPoint Energy (Gas) - Business Energy Efficiency Rebates

January 19, 2023


CenterPoint Energy Delivery of Ohio, formerly Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio,  offers commercial natural gas customers in Ohio rebates for the installation of certain types of efficient natural gas equipment. Prescriptive equipment rebates are available for measures including programmable thermostats, furnaces, boilers, inrared and unit heaters, and commercial kitchen equipment. A custom incentive program is available for projects that do not qualify under the prescriptive rebate program.

The custom rebate program offers a rebate of $0.75 per therm (equivalent to Ccf) for energy savings of up to 7,500 therms per year and $1.00 per therm for energy savings of greater than 7,500 therms per year. The maximum rebate for the custom program is the lesser of 30% of the cost of a project or $25,000. The incentives do not apply to projects with a simple payback of less than 1.5 years. Customers interested in the custom rebate program should contact CenterPoint to see if a potential project will qualify for a rebate. To participate in the program customers must be on rate schedules 320, 321 or 325.

Prescriptive rebate forms must be completed within 90 days of the date of equipment purchase or service. Please consult the program web site for additional information about program requirements, eligible equipment, and applications.
