New York Utility Company Incentives for Energy Efficiency

The Long Island Power Authority and National Grid offer their New York customers some significant rebates on energy efficiency improvements at home, including heating and air conditioning, water heaters, appliances, and weatherizing.

Long Island Power Authority

For a new geothermal heat pump installed in 2020, the Long Island Power Authority offers a $700 rebate if the unit has an energy efficiency ratio (EER) of 13.0 to 16.0. A unit with an EER of 16.0 to 19.0 qualifies for an $800 rebate, and an EER of 19.0 or higher, $1,000. The corresponding rebates for replacing a geothermal heat pump are $200, $250, and $350.

In order to qualify for the geothermal rebate, it is important to verify the eligibility of the equipment. It must be listed on the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) Directory, which you can find at www.ahridirectory.org. You can download the rebate application form on the Long Island Power Authority website at www.lipower.org under Clean Energy - Geothermal Systems. Both you and your contractor need to complete the appropriate sections and sign the form. The rebate application must be submitted within 60 days of installation and you need to attach the invoice or contract, the Manual J calculation, and the Equipment Spec Sheet from the AHRI Directory, indicating the AHRI reference number.

Air source heat pumps and split central air conditioners qualify for rebates of $250 to $600 per unit, depending on the level of efficiency. You can download the rebate application form on the Long Island Power Authority website under Clean Energy - Cool Homes. The air source heat pump or central air conditioner must be installed by a Cool Homes Participating Contractor. You can find a link to a list of these contractors on the same web page. Both you and your contractor should complete and sign the appropriate sections of the rebate application. Your contractor should provide the necessary supporting documents and submit the application.

You can receive a mail-in rebate of $50 on an Energy Star® clothes washer with a modified energy factor (MEF) of at least 2.2 and a water factor of 4.5 or less. There is a $10 mail-in rebate on Energy Star® dehumidifiers. On the Long Island Power Authority website under Clean Energy - Energy Efficient Products you can find a link to qualified clothes washers and participating retailers. You can also download the mail-in rebate application. It must be postmarked before January 31, 2020 for a clothes washer or dehumidifier you purchase in 2020.

You can get instant rebates of $2.00 per pack on cold cathode lights and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), and $2.50 per pack on high heat reflector lamps at participating retailers. You can find links to lists of participating retailers on the Long Island Power Authority website.

National Grid

National Grid offers residential natural gas heating customers in Metro New York various rebates for energy efficiency improvements installed in 2020. A forced hot water-condensing boiler with an annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) of 90% or greater qualifies for an $800 rebate. The rebate for a forced hot water boiler with an AFUE of at least 85% is $500. A steam boiler with electronic ignition and an AFUE of 82% or higher is eligible for a $200 rebate. An outdoor boiler reset control attached to a forced hot water boiler earns a $100 rebate.

If you install a forced hot air furnace with an AFUE of 92% or greater and an electronic commuted motor (ECM) you can get a $400 rebate. Without the ECM motor, the same type of furnace qualifies for a $100 rebate. Energy Star® rated programmable thermostats are eligible for a $25 rebate each, up to 2 per household.

A $300 rebate is available for an indirect water heater attached to an Energy Star® natural gas forced hot water boiler, or an on-demand tank-less water heater with an energy factor of 0.82 or higher and electronic ignition. If you install Energy Star® replacement windows with a U-factor of 0.35 or lower, you can receive a rebate of $10 per window.

You can download the Metro New York rebate application form on the National Grid website at www.thinksmartthinkgreen.com under Home Energy Savings with Efficiency for Gas Customers. You need to attach invoices documenting the installation, and you must submit the application by January 1, 2020 for installations in 2020.

The rebates are slightly different for residential natural gas customers in upstate New York, generally higher. There, a forced hot water-condensing boiler with an AFUE of 90% or higher qualifies for a rebate of $1,200. A forced hot water boiler with an 85% or higher AFUE is eligible for a $750 rebate. A steam boiler with electronic ignition and an AFUE of at least 82% earns a $400 rebate. You can claim a $100 rebate for an outdoor boiler reset control attached to a forced hot water boiler.

In upstate New York, you can receive a $500 rebate for a forced hot air furnace with a 92% or higher AFUE and an electronic commuted motor, and $400 for the same furnace without the motor. As in Metro New York, the rebate for programmable thermostats in upstate New York is $25 each, for a maximum of 2 per household.

An on-demand tank-less water heater with an energy factor of 0.82 or higher and electronic ignition qualifies for a $500 rebate. You can claim a $300 rebate for an indirect water heater attached to a natural gas Energy Star® forced hot water boiler. Energy efficient windows you install in your home in upstate New York qualify for a $10 rebate per window, the same as in Metro New York.

You can download the Upstate New York rebate application form on the same National Grid website page as the Metro New York application. You need to submit the application by January 1, 2020 for installations in 2020 and attach invoices documenting the installation.

The weatherization work must be done by a pre-approved contractor; work you do yourself does not qualify for the rebate.
