to Summary by DSIRE
National Grid’s Commercial Energy Efficiency Program provides support services and incentives to commercial customers who install energy efficient natural gas related measures. Prescriptive rebates are available for common energy efficiency measures installed after the completion of an energy audit, including: natural gas heating measures, programmable thermostats, boiler reset controls, steam trap replacements and kitchen equipment.
The Commercial High Efficiency Heating Program offers rebates for various types of energy efficient space and water heating equipment. Rebates depend on equipment type and efficiency. The Gas-Fired Commercial Kitchen Equipment Program offers $1,000 rebates for commercial steamers, fryers, and convection ovens. All equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards provided on the website listed above.
Custom Incentives may also be available to participating facilities for projects that fall outside the scope of the prescriptive offerings. Customers should refer to the program web site or contact National Grid for more information.
National Grid will also finance 50% (up to $10,000) of the cost incurred as part of an approved energy efficiency engineering study. The study must be completed by a certified energy manager or professional engineer. Contact National Grid for more program information.
