Avista Utilities offers Natural Gas saving incentives to commercial customers on rate schedule 420 and 424. This program provides rebates for a variety of equipment and appliances including cooking equipment, dishwashers, furnaces, refrigeration night curtains, insulation measures and site specific efficiency measures. Rebate amounts range based upon size, model and efficiency. In order to receive a rebate, follow all instructions and procedures identified on the Oregon Prescriptive Commercial Incentives Form and on the program website.

If a commercial customer does not qualify for the Prescriptive program, Avista will consider them for the Site Specific program by conducting an audit and determining what measures will qualify and the incentives. Copies of purchases, itemizing new equipment must accompany form and rebate payments cannot exceed 50% of invoiced cost.
