In addition to its electric equipment rebate program, Avista Utilities offers incentives for its commercial and industrial customers focused on increasing the energy efficiency of natural gas equipment and facilities heated with natural gas. Prescriptive rebates are listed for efficient natural gas furnaces, boilers, and unit heaters as well as for weatherization measures. Multifamily developers can attain incentives of $2,000 per unit from Avista for installing natural gas space and water heating in multifamily buildings (comprised of 5 or more units). The retro-commissioning and site-specific incentive programs provide flexible rebates based on building square footage and first year kWh savings.
