Maryland businesses draw on rebate program to save on equipment and building upgrades

Meeting sustainability goals and saving energy has become increasingly more important to both small and large businesses these days. Now more than ever businesses are finding creative ways to cut energy costs and save money.

There are many benefits associated with a building’s energy efficiency, including lowering energy costs, enhanced comfort for employees and customers, improved productivity, and the added advantage of environmental responsibility are all benefits you won’t want to miss.

Washington Gas Commercial rebates offer business solutions on how to improve their energy use and improve their bottom line.

The commercial program benefits a variety of industries including industrial facilities, nonprofit organizations, small and large businesses, restaurants, hotels, retail, and medical facilities.

Energy-efficient solutions

Washington Gas participates in the EmPOWER Maryland program and offers energy efficiency rebates to help offset the costs associated with large equipment upgrades.

Incentive upgrades offered to businesses include:

  • Boiler systems
  • Steam traps
  • Food service equipment
  • Furnaces
  • Wi-Fi thermostats
  • Infrared heaters
  • Water heaters

Custom Business Solutions: Custom business solutions is available if the high-efficiency equipment is not covered by prescriptive rebates. Potential projects include control systems and envelope measures. Projects are evaluated, and rebates are calculated based on measured energy savings. 

The program is designed to be a straightforward process with the assistance of an approved list of contractors provided by Washington Gas.

“The Washington Gas Energy Efficiency programs have been instrumental in helping our commercial, industrial, and multifamily clients to improve their buildings and save money over time,” said Mike C. Cain, managing director at era Building Solutions in Bethesda, Maryland.

“From thermostats and kitchen equipment to large boilers and advanced controls, the Washington Gas Energy Efficiency programs have helped many of our clients to choose more efficient building options that don’t just save energy, but also improve occupant comfort and maintain a healthier building environment,” he said.
