Montana-Dakota Utilities (MDU) offers rebates on energy efficient natural gas furnaces to its eligible commercial customers. New furnaces are eligible for a rebate incentive between $150 and $300, if the equipment meets program efficiency standards. Furnaces with AFUE between 92% of 95% are eligible for rebates if they are being installed as replacement units or as part of fuel conversion; systems within this efficiency range are not eligible for rebates if installed in new construction. Furnaces with AFUE greater than or equal to 95% are eligible for rebates if installed in new construction. Eligible building must be served under Montana-Dakota's Firm General service rate 70 of 76.

Custom rebates are also available for natural gas customers who pursue energy efficiency upgrades in eligible facilities.
