residential natural gas rebate program

Save energy, save money, and get a rebate?


YES! Say yes to your energy savings by participating in our residential natural gas rebate program. Install qualifying high-efficiency natural gas equipment and you could save more than $150 a year and be eligible for a rebate.



Effective February 1, 2017, we will be offering a $25 rebate on Wi-Fi enabled thermostats that control your natural gas heating system. Also, Wi-Fi enabled thermostats can be either contractor-installed or self-installed, and do not have to be installed in conjunction with a furnace or boiler installation.

This new rebate will replace the current $10 rebate for programmable thermostats on February 1, 2017.

Eligible participants include those rebate applicants who:

  • Have an active RG&E residential natural gas account, and
  • Replace their existing furnace, boiler or water heater with eligible high-efficiency natural gas equipment that meets the program’s standards. Furnaces, boilers and water heaters must be Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) or ENERGY STAR approved. To determine if your equipment qualifies, view the AHRI and ENERGY STAR websites.
