The Energy-Efficiency Rebate Program

The Energy-Efficiency Rebate Program

National Fuel’s energy-efficiency rebate program offers non-residential customers in Western New York several money-saving rebates for replacing specified appliances with new, energy-efficient models.

By combining rebates with projected annual savings for using more energy-efficient equipment, new, high-efficiency appliances can quickly pay for themselves.

Taking advantage of this clean, efficient, secure and abundant resource really adds up—year after year.


An example of how you can make high efficiency more affordable

(Two) New 95% High-Efficiency, Condensing Boilers$25,600
(Two) Standard 80% Efficiency Non-condensing Boilers$18,000
Cost Difference for Higher-Efficiency Model$7,600
One-Time Fixed Rebate $3,000
Cost Difference after Rebate$4,600
Annual Operating Cost Savings$1,938*
Simple Payback on Cost for High-Efficiency Mode2.4 years**

*This is only an example. Your actual investment and savings may be higher or lower depending on the model(s) you choose to install, the efficiency of the boiler(s) you are replacing, fluctuating fuel costs and actual cost of installation. Based on average gas costs of $10.60 per Mcf for the 12 months ending September 30, 2023.

**With savings on annual operating costs of $1,938 per year, the $4,600 incremental investment will be paid back in 2.4 years.

There are two ways to save†

  1. Fixed (pre-qualified) rebate — Available on pre-qualified equipment
  2. Customized (performance-based) rebate  — Determined on a case-by-case basis, based on the results of an energy-use analysis. Customized rebates are determined by multiplying the annual energy savings in Mcf by $15. This may result in a larger rebate than if your company received a fixed rebate.

†New construction projects are eligible for rebates. Rebate cap of $100,000 per project, per program year.

Please note: For both pre-qualified and performance-based applications, all appliances must be installed by a contractor.

Rebates are available for equipment upgrades, as well as new builds. Rebate cap of $100,000 per project, per program year.
