  • Boiler reset controls
  • Steam trap replacements
  • Pipe/duct insulation
  • Building shell insulation

Custom Incentives are available for projects that demonstrate the use of natural gas more efficiently than industry practices and/or more efficiently than the minimum building code requirements. Incentives are available covering up to a maximum of 50% of project costs, capped at $100,000 per site and/or per project. Custom incentives are classified as either Level One ($0.75 per first year of estimated therm savings) or Level Two ($1.50 per first year of estimated therm savings).
