Philadelphia Gas Works' (PGW) Commercial and Industrial Retrofit Incentive Program is part of EnergySense, PGW’s portfolio of energy efficiency programs designed to help customers save energy and money. This program offers incentives of up to $75,000 to commercial and industrial rate customers who make energy efficiency improvements to existing buildings. Incentives are awarded to projects which obtain the greatest amount of gas savings, contain comprehensive energy-efficiency measures, and utilize the highest efficiency equipment commercially available. Customers must complete and submit an initial Incentive Application outlining the scope of a proposed project. The proposal will undergo a Technical Assessment and on-site energy assessment if a project meets preliminary criteria. PGW works with customers to complete the Project Data Collection Worksheet which details expected measures, costs, and savings.

Once PGW determines the incentive level, customers can implement the eligible project and submit a Project Completion Certificate within 60 days of project completion. After an inspection of the installed measures, PGW will pay incentives within 4 to 6 weeks. In order for projects to be eligible, applying entities must be PGW commercial or industrial rate customers, the project must have begun the project after September 1, 2011, and all upgrades must be performed on an "existing building". Multi-family property owners are encouraged to apply as well. Major rehabilitation projects and new construction is not eligible for this program, but may be eligible for other PGW incentives. Contact PGW for more information on this program or visit the program web site.
