National Grid’s Commercial Energy Efficiency Program provides support services and incentives to commercial customers who install energy efficient natural gas related measures.  
Prescriptive ProgramPrescriptive rebates are available for common energy efficiency measures installed after the completion of an energy audit, including: natural gas heating measures, programmable thermostats, boiler reset controls, steam trap replacements and kitchen equipment. 

The Commercial High Efficiency Heating Program offers rebates for various types of energy efficient space and water heating equipment. Rebates depend on equipment type and efficiency. The Gas-Fired Commercial Kitchen Equipment Program offers $1,000 rebates for commercial steamers, fryers, and convection ovens. All equipment must meet certain energy efficiency standards provided on the website listed above. 

Custom Program:
Incentives may also be available to participating facilities for projects that fall outside the scope of the prescriptive offerings. Customers participating in a custom program may design their own energy efficiency measure specific to their needs. Customers pre-approved for custom program receive one time rebate based on estimated first year savings up to 75% of the incremental project cost,  or a one year payback for new construction projects. Retrofit projects may qualify for incentives up to 50% of the total project cost or a one year payback. Customers can refer to the program web site or contact National Grid for more information. 

Energy Audit: National Grid will also finance 50% (up to $10,000) of the cost incurred as part of an approved energy efficiency engineering study. The study must be completed by a certified energy manager or professional engineer. Contact National Grid for more program information.
