Option 2 - Customized (Performance-Based) Rebates

I. Rebate Levels

National Fuel's Conservation Incentive Program provides large non-residential customers with rebates of the lesser of $15 per Mcf x the gas savings (Mcf), or 50% of the total project cost (with a maximum of $200,000 for commercial facilities and $5 million for industrial facilities) on the cost to upgrade to qualifying energy-efficient furnaces, boilers, water heaters, and process heating equipment. In addition, improvements directly related to gas equipment energy savings, including but not limited to measures such as steam/hot water distribution piping insulation, boiler control systems, flue gas economizers, and heat recovery, are eligible for consideration. All National Fuel large, non-residential customers using more than 12,000 Mcf (thousand cubic feet) per year of natural gas are eligible to participate. Rebates are determined on a case-by case basis, based on the results of an energy-use analysis. This may result in a larger rebate than if your company were to receive a fixed rebate.
