NYSEG and RG&E offer rebates to non-residential customers installing energy efficiency equipment that pay a natural gas Systems Benefits Charge (SBC). Both prescriptive rebates and custom incentives are available. These rebates are being offered due to the June 2008 New York State Public Service Commission order to meet New York's Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard. The goal is to reduce statewide energy use by 15% by 2015.
Custom incentives are available when energy efficiency improvements require site-specific engineering and cost analysis. Any nonresidential NYSEG or RG&E electricity customer regardless of size is eligible, and customers can select their own contractor to install equipment.
If standard rebate or custom projects meet the eligibility requirements specified on the individual application forms, then participants should submit equipment specification sheets, equipment inventory sheets, building plans and invoices with the application. NYSEG or RG&E may require a pre-installation inspection. After approval of the application, NYSEG or RG&E will authorize payment in 6-8 weeks. Pre-approval is required for all custom applications, and for standard rebate applications of more than $10,000.
