North Carolina Rebate Program
Natural Gas Water Heater Rebates
Commercial water heaters consume a considerable amount of energy, accounting for about 11 percent of the total energy load, on average, in many commercial facilities.
Upgrading to a higher-efficiency water heater can result in recognizable energy savings. The Natural Gas Water Heater Rebate Program for businesses will offset some of the incremental cost associated with choosing more efficient equipment.
Commercial customers in North Carolina who replace existing natural gas equipment with qualifying high-efficiency natural gas equipment are eligible for up to a $200 rebate. This includes the following qualifying high-efficiency gas water heater.
Rebates currently available:
Please note: As of May 1, 2012, rebate incentive amounts will change to a tiered system in which the incentive amount varies by the efficiency level of the installed equipment. Customers who received the previous rebate amounts but had equipment installed at the new, higher-tier efficiency levels as of June 15, 2011, will receive a check in the amount of the difference from Piedmont.
Proof of installation (a copy of the receipt, invoice, or contract) and/or proof of purchase must be included with the rebate application.
Please allow up to six weeks for rebate processing from the time the rebate form is received in the mail by Piedmont Natural Gas.
Rebate funds are limited and will be paid on a first-come, firstserved basis until all funds are depleted or the program is withdrawn or terminated. Piedmont Natural Gas reserves the right to modify, withdraw or terminate this program at any time upon reasonable notice as posted on our website.
