Vectren Energy Delivery offers commercial natural gas customers in Ohio rebates for the installation of certain types of efficient natural gas equipment. Prescriptive equipment rebates are available for measures including furnaces, boilers, boiler controls, and water heaters. A custom incentive program is available for projects that do not qualify under the prescriptive rebate program.

The custom rebate program offers a rebate of $0.75 per therm for energy savings of up to 7,500 therms and $1.00 per therm for energy savings of greater than 7,500 therms. The maximum rebate for the custom program is the lesser of 30% of the cost of a project or $25,000. Customers interested in the custom rebate program should contact Vectren to see if a potential project will qualify for a rebate. To participate in the program customers must be on rate schedules 320, 321 or 325.

Prescriptive rebate forms must be completed within 90 days of the date of equipment purchase or service. Please consult the program web site for additional information about program requirements, eligible equipment, and applications.
