In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and New York State, we are temporarily suspending all energy efficiency program activities that require an in-person visit to your home. Incentive payments for the Residential Rebate and NYS Clean Heat Statewide Heat Pump programs will be processed for essential, emergency work only until the restrictions put in place by New York State Executive Order 202.8 are lifted.
Please note: Rebate check processing may take longer than the standard 4 to 6 weeks.
WHAT WE OFFER
We are pleased to offer rebates to our residential natural gas and electricity customers who install qualifying high-efficiency equipment including natural gas furnaces, boilers, water heaters, dryers, and electric heat pumps.
View our list of qualifying equipment and available rebates.
We offer a $75 rebate on Wi-Fi thermostats that control your natural gas heating and/or central air conditioning systems. Also, Wi-Fi thermostats can be either contractor-installed or self-installed, and do not have to be installed in conjunction with a furnace or boiler installation.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
Eligible participants include those rebate applicants who:
- Have an active NYSEG residential natural gas and/or electricity account. You must be a NYSEG natural gas heating customer to be eligible for natural gas equipment and Wi-Fi thermostat (natural gas heating) rebates.
