Steam Rebates and Incentives

Discover ways to optimize your steam service and save.

Do you have a combined heat and power system that produces excess steam? We may be able to help you maximize the efficiency of your system while earning money from your excess steam capacity.

How it works.

We may be able to purchase your steam if it:

  • matches our pressure and purity requirements
  • is in the range of 2 to 40 Mlb/hr (thousand pounds per hour)

You can sell us your excess steam during both peak and low-load hours. The amount you sell to us can vary and we can commit to buying your steam for a minimum of 10 years.

Space is limited in this program, so apply today.

Is it time to update or replace your chiller equipment? Take advantage of reduced steam rates when you install a new steam A/C system. Steam is the best choice for both economical and reliable cooling.

Customer Benefits

  • Save money on new, more-efficient steam equipment.
  • Maintain your existing steam operations, maintenance staff, and operating and maintenance procedures.
  • Help maintain electric reliability for your building and your neighborhood.
  • Contribute to keeping electric and steam rates down.

How the Program Works

  1. Submit an application with the required supporting materials about your proposed project.
  2. We’ll review your application and let you know if you’re eligible.
  3. Sign and submit your required customer agreement within 30 days.
  4. We will schedule a preinstallation field visit to verify application information and supporting documents.
