Fast Track Savings for Gas Measures

It’s now even easier to earn incentives on gas-saving measures, such as boiler cleanings, tune-ups, and replacements; pipe and roof insulation; and energy management systems.

Pre-war multifamily buildings (built before 1940) with 5–50 units may be eligible to receive up to $500 in incentives per dwelling unit.
