The ThermWise Business Custom Program offers qualifying business customers an opportunity to obtain rebates for natural gas saving energy efficiency projects that fall outside of the prescriptive ThermWise Business Program. In order for a project to qualify this program, the facility where the project is taking place must be on a commercial GS rate and the customer must contact us PRIOR to purchasing or installing any equipment. If a customer does not contact us before beginning a project, it will NOT qualify.
Qualifying measures may be installed in either existing or new construction applications and include any measure that:
Produces a verifiable natural gas usage reduction
Has a minimum useful life of 7 years
Is not offered though the post-purchase ThermWise Business Rebates Program
Examples of Eligible Measures
Simplified Analysis Measures
• Heat-recovery Installations
• Air-to-Air Heat Exchangers
• Solar Hot-Water Heating
• Steam/Hot Water Pipe Insulation
• Retro-commissioning projects
• Boiler Controls
• Control system upgrades
• Process equipment insulation
Rebates offered through the ThermWise Business Custom Rebates program for qualifying projects shall be the lesser of:
$1.00 per therm saved during the first year following installation, or
50% of eligible project costs
Rebates will be paid in the form of a check within 6-8 weeks of approval of a complete project application.
How to Participate?
Step 1 — Contact Us - Contact the Program Administrator to discuss the proposed project and determine rebate availability and whether working with an energy engineering firm is recommended. Step 2 — Submit Pre-Installation Report - Submit a Pre-Installation Report, outlining the proposed project, estimated gas savings, and projected costs and sign a Program Agreement. The Program Administrator must approve the Pre-Installation Report before any equipment is purchased or installed to be eligible for rebates. Step 3 — Complete the Project - Purchase, Install and Commission (if required) approved measures. Step 4 — Submit Post-Installation Report - Submit a Post-Installation Report detailing the measures installed, commissioning performed (if required), and final estimated gas savings and project costs. Step 5 — Receive a Rebate - We will review the Post-Installation Report and conduct an inspection. Rebate approval and amount will be contingent on final inspection results and paid in the form of a check within 45 days of approval.
