Offers for business customers
Rebates are available to Nicor Gas business and multi-family customers for the purchase and installation of high-efficiency equipment, products and services.
Energy-saving projects that are not eligible for standard rebates may be eligible for custom incentives. Custom incentives require pre- and final approval. Projects must yield a minimum savings of 2,500 therms to be eligible. Incentives are available for up to $350,000 or 35 percent of the project cost, whichever is less.
Business energy assessments
energySMART offers several types of assessments to fit the needs of every type and size of business, including facility assessments, opportunity assessments, multi-family property assessments and small and medium business assessments. Assessments are performed by an energySMART engineer, and include a comprehensive list of recommended upgrades that will improve the energy efficiency of the property. Customers are then referred to the Find a Contractor tool to complete the recommended work.
Why promote assessments?
Assessments are performed by energySMART staff, including Energy Advisors and engineers. After the assessment, the customer is given a comprehensive assessment report including equipment and improvement suggestions to boost their energy savings. It may include a list of up to three Contractor Circle installing members in the area that can be contracted to complete the suggested work. If your company recommended the assessment, the customer may authorize energySMART to list you on the report, send you a copy of the report, and/or invite you to the follow-up meeting.
