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.

We now provide new construction rebates for customers who design and construct their facilities with energy-efficient equipment. Rebates can be pursued through either a Prescriptive or Custom application depending on the measure(s) installed. The incentive catalogs indicate which prescriptive measures are eligible for new construction.


Our program is open to NYSEG nonresidential commercial, industrial, institutional customers and municipalities who pay an electricity and/or natural gas System Benefits Charge (SBC) on their utility bills. Find more eligibility information.
