Incentive Size and Funding SourceThe New York State Energy and Gas (NYSEG) and Rochester Gas & Electric (RG&E) Commercial and Industrial Rebate Program offers custom rebates to qualifying non-residential customers who install energy efficiency measures that are not covered by the prescriptive applications. There is no maximum rebate per customer, but NYSEG/RG&E may cap rebates for individual projects. NYSEG or RG&E reserve the right to deny any application that may result in either company exceeding its program budget. Customers can receive rebates from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) or their utility, but not from both NYSERDA and their utility for the same measure. Measures must be cost-effective (total resource cost of at least 1.0 to be confirmed by rebate processor). Incentives are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to project and customer eligibility and availability of funds.
Eligible RecipientThe custom measures rebate program is available for non-residential, commercial or industrial customers within the NYSEG or RG&E service area who pay into the System Benefits Charge. Custom measures rebates are for those projects requiring "site-specific engineering and cost analysis." Customers must have an electric load of 100 kW or greater.
