Vectren Energy Delivery offers residential natural gas customers in Ohio rebates for the installation of certain high efficiency natural gas appliances and building insulation. Rebates are available for furnaces, boilers, air sealing, attic insulation and wall insulation. Builders are eligible to receive rebates for the installation of qualified measures in new homes, but may elect to enroll in the Vectren Energy Star Home Rebate program instead.

In order to be eligible for a rebate, equipment must meet certain efficiency and installation requirements. Please see the program web site for a list of appliance models that meet the minimum standards. Vectren reserves the right to verify sales receipts and perform post-installation verification inspections. Rebate forms must be postmarked no later than thirty days after the purchase of a qualified measure.
