Programs and Solutions: Commercial Rebates

The Commercial Rebate programs for Virginia and Maryland customers are intended to provide an incentive for businesses to reduce their energy consumption and save money on utility bills.


The Programs


The Virginia Commercial Rebate program was designed to specifically target small businesses in the Washington Gas service areas of Virginia. Virginia business owners are eligible to receive rebates on high-efficiency natural gas furnaces and WIFI-Enabled smart thermostats.


Washington Gas also participates in the EmPower Maryland Initiative – helping businesses throughout Maryland reduce energy consumption with rebates on high-efficiency natural gas equipment including boiler systems, water and space heating and food service.


As part of the program, incentives are available for the purchase and installation of high-efficiency equipment. Maryland business owners are eligible to receive commercial rebates to offset first-cost equipment costs extending up to $150,000 per customer per year. Utilizing high-efficiency natural gas products reduces the utility bill costs and increases efficiency for businesses.


Application Process


Maryland businesses are required to apply for pre-approval before beginning a project. All applications are submitted via an online portal. Once approved, a licensed contractor is required to install the equipment.


Virginia businesses are also required to have applicable equipment installed by a licensed contractor. Once all applicable equipment is installed, a completed rebate application for the specific product with all required documentation can be mailed. No pre-approval is required for Virginia businesses.  


 Eligible Appliances/Products

Only current and prospective customers of Washington Gas with valid Virginia and Maryland account numbers will be eligible for rebates. Also, a licensed contractor must install all products for rebate eligibility, with the exception of thermostats.
