The Commercial Kitchen Equipment Rebate
February 5, 2016
The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) is currently experiencing overwhelming demand for our Commercial and Industrial energy efficiency programs in the SCG service territory. Due to the extreme program popularity, the SCG budgets for these programs are severely constrained. In an effort to mitigate the impacts on our customers, we will be approving natural gas energy efficiency projects on a "case by case" basis or as funds become available. This "case by case" review will be applied to all Energy Conscious Blueprint, Energy Opportunities, Small Business, and Operations & Maintenance projects as well as any rebates.
Customers considering a project and seeking SCG gas energy efficiency incentives should submit the project in a timely manner. The project will go through a thorough review and approval process by SCG representatives. Once the project is reviewed, it will be determined whether funds are still available. If funds are available, a Standard Agreement or Letter of Agreement will be signed by The United Illuminating Company (The Southern Connecticut Gas Company) management and forwarded on for signature. This agreement must be signed within 30 calendar days by the customer (or their representative). Please be advised that in situations where the customer has not signed the SCG portion of the agreement within the 30 day period, UI (SCG) may opt to rescind the incentive proposal per the agreement.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

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.
