Citizens Gas of Indiana offers rebates to commercial customers for the installation of several types of efficient natural gas appliances, as well as certain equipment upgrades and tune-up services. These rebates are only available for commercial customers on Heating or Non-heating Delivery Service (D3 and D4) rate schedules. Customers in the Westfield area and Marion County are eligible for similar rebates; however customers should note that they differ slightly. See program web site for rebate amounts in Westfield and Marion. Prescriptive rebates are generally available for boilers, boiler reset controls, boiler modulating burner controls, furnaces, programmable thermostats, commercial and residential size water heaters, low flow pre-rinse sprayers, boiler tune-ups, and certain steam trap services. Custom rebates are available for improvements that are not eligible under the prescriptive rebate program.

Rebates for prescriptive measures vary by equipment. Some take the form of a flat rebate while others are based on a percentage of the equipment purchase cost -- not including installation and taxes -- subject to a maximum. All prescriptive measures must meet the minimum efficiency and equipment requirements established by the utility. This includes a requirement that the equipment be fueled by natural gas and may also include other requirements related to natural gas use at the customer site as a whole.

Custom rebates are set at 30% of project costs up to a maximum of $25,000. Examples of eligible projects may include but are not limited to: heat recovery, HVAC and water heating control projects, outside air control, insulation, and infrared heaters.

Applications for rebates must be received within 90 days of the equipment purchase or service. Citizens Gas reserves the right to verify sales and installation of eligible products and may conduct random site inspections for this purpose. Please see the program web site for further information about prescriptive equipment eligibility, the application process, and participation in the custom rebate program.
