Commercial Efficient HVAC Controls Program
PNG is now offering up to $3,250 in individual incentives to its business and institutional customers when you upgrade your Commercial Controls through our Preferred Contractor Network.
How to Qualify
- You must be a PNG commercial rate class natural gas customer or a provider of non-profit or public housing.
- You must be a property owner or long-term lease holder of an existing building.
- You must purchase and install one or more of the Eligible Measures identified below.
- The Eligible Measure must be installed by a PNG Preferred Contractor.
- Boiler Outdoor Reset Controls – the lesser of 50% of the cost of eligible products and services or $1,750
- This measure optimizes boiler operation by responding to changes in weather. It is achieved through the addition of controls that lower the outlet water temperature of space heating hot water boilers when the outdoor air temperature increases.
- Advanced Rooftop Unit Controls – the lesser of 25% of the cost of eligible products and services or $1,625
- This measure allows remote monitoring, and enables control of fan speed, economizer function, and the thermostat, making it easier, and cheaper, to maintain occupant comfort and system efficiency. This measure results in both heating and cooling savings.
- Space Heating Boiler Tune-up – the lesser of 50% of the cost of eligible products and services or $900 for boiler capacity up to 250MBH, and up to $1,250 for boiler capacity over 250 MBH
- This measure is for a non-residential boiler that provides space heating. The tune-up involves inspection and cleaning of the boiler, as well as optimizing the air/fuel ratio to reduce excess air and stack temperature, and recommissioning boiler controls.
- Automatic Blowdown Valve -the lesser of 50% of the cost of eligible products and services or $2,500 for boiler capacity up to 250MBH, and up to $3,250 for boiler capacity over 250 MBH
- This measure is for a steam boiler where feed water is chemically treated and a surface blowdown valve operates continuously to remove Total Suspended Solids (TDS) and undissolved solids that are left behind as feed water evaporates. The automatic blowdown feature has a sensor which measures the TDS level and triggers the valve to open whenever required to maintain TDS concentrations below maximum allowable limits.
