Vermont Gas (VGS) offers two energy efficiency programs for commercial customers: the WorkPlace New Construction Program and the WorkPlace Equipment Replacement and Retrofit Program.
The VGS WorkPlace New Construction Program provides information, consultation, and financial assistance for owners, architects, engineers, or developers interested in making new buildings energy efficient. Services include: technical information and support, engineering analysis, financial incentives, networking, and advising. For more information on financial incentives, interested customers should contact the Commercial Energy Services Representative listed below or go to the web site above to fill out an online request for a walk through audit.
The WorkPlace Equipment Replacement and Retrofit Program is designed for its commercial and industrial customers who are considering renovating buildings or replacing equipment. The program offers rebates on a variety of energy efficient technologies ranging from steam boilers to pool heaters. For a complete list of technologies eligible for rebates see the web site provided above. In order to qualify for this program, customers must contact a VGS Commercial Energy Services Representative prior to replacing the piece of equipment. If a high efficiency piece of equipment is available for the application, a VGS Energy Services Representative will calculate the natural gas savings and the customer will be offered a rebate to install the high efficiency piece of equipment. Actual contractor pricing may be used to confirm the feasibility of a project and help determine the rebate. Once a contract is executed, a VGS representative performs an energy efficiency inspection and a rebate check is issued.
