The Commercial Kitchen Equipment Rebate
Please be advised that effective immediately, due to overwhelming demand and participation throughout the Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) service territory, the SCG budget for commercial and industrial natural gas energy efficiency projects is fully committed. In an effort to lessen the impacts and extend services during the preceding months, UIL Holdings Corporation (UIL) had only been approving commercial and industrial natural gas energy efficiency projects on a "case by case" basis or as funds became available. This "case by case" review process has been applied to all current Energy Conscious Blueprint, Energy Opportunities, Small Business, and Operations & Maintenance projects including any rebates.
If a customer is considering a project and seeking SCG gas energy efficiency incentives, be advised that there are currently no funds available to do so. A customer can choose to submit a project; however, it’s required to go through a thorough review and approval process by SCG representatives. Once the project is reviewed, it will be held on file. In the unlikely circumstance that funds do become available, a Standard Agreement or Letter of Agreement will be signed by UIL management and forwarded on for signature. This agreement must be signed within 30 calendar days by the customer (or their representative). As always, the customer will have the option to revisit the project and sign the appropriate documentation to receive funding.

If you are a natural gas customer on a firm rate, consider upgrading your gas-fired fryers, steamers, and convection ovens to ENERGY STAR qualified models and recognize the value of real savings in your pocket.
These energy-efficient appliances "can save up to 50 percent over their conventional counterparts" according to the ENERGY STAR Web site. Not only will you save energy, you'll help reduce greenhouse gases, which everyone can appreciate.
