High Efficiency Furnace and Gas Boiler Program

The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) is currently experiencing a strong demand for the residential energy efficiency programs leading to program budgets being severely constrained. Due to the increase in program activity, at the close of business on June 16, 2022, SCG will no longer offer incentives for natural gas boilers, furnaces and water heaters sold in SCG territory. Effective June 17, 2022, the instant discount currently offered upstream by distributors will no longer be offered to customers in the SCG territory.

We look forward to resuming program activity in SCG territory once funding becomes available in 2023.

Please note this does not impact Eversource Electric or Gas or Connecticut Natural Gas (CNG).
