NorthWestern Energy offers multiple rebate programs for commercial and industrial customers to make energy efficient improvements to their businesses. The E+ Commercial Natural Gas Savings Program, for both existing businesses and new construction, offers incentives on a variety of equipment designed to improve energy efficiency. Many of the rebates are calculated based on KBtu/hr output rating of installed equipment. Prior to rebate payment, NorthWestern Energy representatives may inspect completed jobs. Information on specific equipment eligibility and rebate amounts may be found on the Natural Gas Savings application forms for new construction and existing businesses.
