Natural Gas Program
Efficiency Maine offers a natural gas efficiency program for natural gas business customers. The program includes prescriptive incentives 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.
Are you a Unitil business customer? Unitil customers will have a higher incentive level to reflect additional funding generated in their service territory for natural gas initiatives.
