The Right Solution for Every Project
The NYSEG/RG&E Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Rebate Program delivers energy efficiency options in two key ways:
- Prescriptive rebates for a broad range of specific, pre-determined measures.
- Custom rebates for projects that require site-specific assessment and cost analysis.
This program is open to NYSEG and RG&E nonresidential commercial, industrial and institutional customers and municipalities that pay an electricity and/or natural gas System Benefits Charge (SBC) on their utility bills. More eligibility information can be found here.
