Natural Gas Program
Efficiency Maine offers a natural gas efficiency program for business customers. The program includes prescriptive incentives to customers of Unitil, and focuses on premium efficiency boilers, furnaces and heaters, and their associated controls, as well as efficient gas-fired commercial kitchen equipment.
Natural Gas-fired Boilers, Furnaces and Heaters: Incremental incentives are available to customers who upgrade from code-compliant standard practice equipment to premium equipment for both existing and new facilities.
Commercial Kitchen Equipment: Restaurants, schools, and hospitals all offer opportunities for increased energy efficiency through the installation of premium efficiency equipment. Examples include high-efficiency fryers, ovens, steamers, broilers and griddles.
• Equipment must be new and installed as part of the construction or renovation of a commercial, industrial, institutional, educational, or municipal building. When installed in multifamily buildings, equipment must either serve common areas or serve two or more units.
• Project must involve the replacement of equipment that has failed or is at the end of its useful life in an existing building.
