*This is only an example. Your actual investment and
savings may be higher or lower depending on the models
you choose to install, the efficiency of the furnace you are
replacing, fluctuating fuel costs and your actual installed cost.
Based on average gas costs of $7.07 per Mcf (including taxes)
for 12 months ending September 20, 2015.
**With savings on annual operating costs of $1,506 per
year, the $4,500 incremental investment will be paid back
in 3 years.
So why is National Fuel helping you
use less natural gas?
A lot of people believe that National Fuel
controls the cost of natural gas and that
higher natural gas prices equal more
revenue for the utility company. The truth is
that utilities have no control over the market
price of natural gas. The price you pay for
natural gas is set in the energy marketplace,
where forces of supply and demand
drive value. By law, we pass those costs to
customers without mark-up.
With the Conservation Incentive Rebate
Program, National Fuel is providing
customers with ways to use less natural
gas, helping to bring balance back to the
marketplace—and lowering the price we all
pay for the energy we use.

The Conservation
Incentive Program
Thinking about purchasing a new
piece of natural gas equipment?
Choose high efficiency and save.
The National Fuel Conservation Incentive
Rebate Program offers non-residential
customers in the Western New York service area
several money-saving rebates for replacing
specified appliances with new, energy-efficient
models. By combining rebates with projected
annual savings for using more energy-efficient
equipment, new, high-efficiency appliances
can quickly pay for themselves.
Offering you two ways to save.
Customers with facilities that use less than
12,000 Mcf (thousand cubic feet) of natural
gas per year are eligible for rebates.*
• F
ixed (Pre-Qualified) Rebate
Available on pre-qualified equipment.
• C
ustomized (Performance-Based) Rebate
Determined on a case-by-case basis, based
on the results of an energy-use analysis.
Customized rebates are determined by
multiplying the annual energy savings in Mcf
by $15. This may result in a larger rebate than
if your company received a fixed rebate.
