Residential Natural Gas Rebate Program

NYSEG re-opened the Residential Natural Gas Rebates program on October 1, 2010. This is a continuation of the Residential Natural Gas Rebates program launched in late 2009 to encourage residential natural gas customers to install high efficiency natural gas equipment and related control equipment.

NYSEG initial Residential Natural Gas Rebates program was fully subscribed on February 28, 2010. The re-opening of the program on October 1, 2010 is offering residential natural gas customers rebates for installing qualifying natural gas equipment, related control equipment and duct sealing, completed on or after October 1, 2010.

High-Efficiency Natural Gas Equipment and Duct Sealing Rebate Program Website


On June 23, 2008 the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC) issued an Order establishing an Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (EEPS) for New York State. In this Order, all New York State utilities were required to implement a residential natural gas heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) energy efficiency program.

NYSEG will offer rebates to eligible residential natural gas customers who replace their existing furnace, boiler, and/or water heater with high-efficiency natural gas equipment. The high-efficiency equipment must meet specific efficiency ratings.

The purpose of the program is to encourage customers to purchase and install higher efficiency equipment, thereby reducing the state’s overall energy consumption and encouraging wise energy use.
