Natural gas commercial customers are eligible for incentives for high-efficiency boilers, furnaces, and controls. Installing a high-efficiency system can reduce your business’s energy costs and ongoing operating expenses, leaving you more money to grow your business. If you’re starting a new business, switching to natural gas, or your current natural gas equipment is old or inefficient, it’s the right time for you to consider installing a high-efficiency unit.
Businesses can save money, increase equipment reliability, and create more comfortable and productive workplaces by making energy-efficient choices when installing, upgrading, or replacing heating equipment. Incentives are currently available for Maine Natural Gas, Summit Natural Gas and Unitil Natural Gas utilities only for high-efficiency boilers, furnaces, heaters, and controls, including:
- modulating burners,

- oxygen trim,
- boiler turbulator,
