Commercial Industrial Rebate Program

Commercial & Industrial Rebate Program

Our Commercial and Industrial Rebate Program provides rebates to non-residential electric and natural gas customers for energy efficiency upgrades to facilities and equipment. Upgrading to newer energy-efficient equipment can reduce operational costs and improve reliability, safety, comfort, and aesthetics for your business.

Rebates may cover up to 50% of eligible project costs!
