Commercial And Industrial Programs

Commercial-Industrial Solutions Programs

This program is designed to encourage our commercial and industrial customers to implement energy efficiency improvements that will reduce natural gas consumption.

The program will provide cash and non-cash incentives for a variety of direct install, prescriptive, or custom natural gas energy efficiency projects.

The direct-install measures are most appropriate for restaurants, food service organizations, and small-businesses. Proposed direct install measures may include but are not limited to:

  • Pre-rinse spray valves
  • Aerators
  • Weather Stripping
  • Steam Traps
  • Showerheads

Prescriptive measures offer a standard menu of qualifying energy savings opportunities. Proposed measures include but are not limited to:

  • ENERGY STAR Combination Oven
  • ENERGY STAR Rotating Rack Oven
  • ENERGY STAR Convection Oven
  • ENERGY STAR Conveyor Oven

Case Studies

Learn how Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith saved money on their gas and water bills - at no cost to them.

Learn how Tate & Lyle reduced their gas usage by 240,000 CCFs ($160,000) per year.

Learn how Nestle decreased their annual gas bill by $98,000 with instant payback.

To qualify for custom incentives under the Commercial/Industrial Solutions Program, program participants will be required to follow an established documentation, reporting, and inspection procedure. Actual incentive dollars the participant will receive through the program will be calculated from approved pre- and post-inspections by the engineering team. The Commercial/Industrial Solutions program will offer custom incentives for measures in the following categories:

  • Boiler Upgrades
  • Linkless Controls
  • Economizers
  • Blow Down Heat Recovery
  • HVAC Systems
  • Controls
  • Process Efficiency Improvements
  • Process Ovens
  • Kilns
  • Steam System Insulation
  • Steam Trap Replacement
  • Furnaces
  • Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers
  • Building Thermal Improvements
  • Water Heating Improvements
