RG&E is offering residential natural gas customers rebates for installing energy efficient equipment. Customers can complete one rebate application for multiple pieces of equipment as long as they are not the same type of equipment. Most products must be installed using a licensed contractor or a contractor that can supply either a Federal ID number, a Certificate of Insurance or a Business Certificate. Customers can refer to the ENERGY STAR Web site for tips on how to find the right contractor.
An online rebate reservation system is used to ensure program funds are not overextended. All new rebate requests must first be reserved in the rebate reservation system to be valid. The program will automatically close once all available program funding has been accounted for by online rebate reservations.
