Residential High Efficiency Natural Gas Water Heater

Instant Discount Program


January 1, 2017

Dear Customers and Program Partners,

Due to the extreme popularity of our ratepayer funded Energy Efficiency programs, The Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) is currently experiencing strong demand for its residential programs. As a result of this overwhelming popularity, the SCG budgets for these programs are severely constrained and as of January 1, 2017, SCG will not offer incentives for natural gas boilers and natural gas water heaters for installations in the SCG territory. There will be an $800 natural gas furnace instant discount available for qualified high efficiency natural gas furnace purchases made for SCG service territory natural gas customers

We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. We look forward to resuming program activity at such time that additional funding becomes available.

Please be advised that this does not apply to CNG customers.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Manager, Residential Energy Services
