Usage and Safety 
commercial and industrial rebate program

The right solution for every project?


YES! Controlling energy use is a great way to lower overhead costs and create more comfortable surroundings for your employees and customers while reducing your impact on the environment. Say YES to your energy savings for your business!

Please Note:

Due to strong participation, our natural gas rebate program is fully subscribed and unfortunately funding is no longer available for 2016 natural gas projects.

All new applications received will be offered the option to be placed on our wait list. Given that project status and incentive amounts can change for committed projects, some funding may become available later in the year. If funds become available, wait list projects will be given first priority based on the order in which they are received and the funding amount requested.

Projects requesting funding for 2017 can still be submitted for preapproval, however, they cannot be completed before January 1, 2017.


Our Commercial and Industrial (C&I) Rebate Program delivers energy efficiency options in two key ways:

  • Prescriptive rebates for a broad range of specific, predetermined measures.
  • Custom rebates for projects that require site-specific assessment and cost analysis, and are not eligible for any prescriptive rebates.



This program is open to NYSEG 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.
