UGI provides incentives for cost-effective natural gas energy efficiency projects:
Who is this program for?
Existing and new construction UGI Gas commercial customers in Pennsylvania with a rate class of N, NT, DS, or LFD planning to complete a project that uses natural gas more efficiently. Commercial, Industrial, Agricultural, and Multifamily projects may submit projects for review*. UGI Gas customers in Maryland are not currently eligible to participate.
*All project measures must be installed within the past 180 days to be eligible.
Business types may include Breweries, Restaurants, Car Washes, Laundry Facilities, Dry Cleaners, Manufactures, Greenhouses, and Industrial Processors.
What Makes a Project Cost-Effective?
A project is cost-effective when every dollar spent on energy efficiency upgrades, returns more than one dollar, over the lifetime of the upgrade.
If an insulation project costs $17,000 and saves $21,000 over the 40-year lifetime of the insulation, the project would be cost-effective. If this same project cost $24,000, it would not be considered cost-effective.
