1The City is making efforts to transform buildings to be as energy efficient as possible. In order to meet the City’s goals to address climate change the City will need to transition away from fossil fuels such as natural gas. As part of this transition, we are aligning our incentives for energy efficiency with a shift to the electrification of buildings. However, we also understand that not all applications for electrification may at this moment work for buildings in our journey to a clean energy future. Therefore, we do provide an interim incentive for gas efficiency where the total maximum incentive for any gas project(s) is $5,000. For any HVAC, water heater, boiler quotes, we will require at least one electrification quote (in good faith). For packaged HVAC units such as rooftop HVAC units that utilize gas, the total maximum grant amount is $5,000.
2Electrification projects are defined as a conversion of a gas appliance to all-electric. For example, converting a gas stove, HVAC, or water heater to 100% electric. For new construction projects, we will need proof of previously budgeted and agreed upon project specifications that incorporated natural gas connections and an updated budget and project specifications that show proof of electrification (forgoing gas connection).
3Organizations can use grant dollars for educational displays and engineering studies for educational displays and/or engineering studies. To receive this incentive, participants must complete an EASSI eligible project.
