Instructions for Use
Some prescriptive projects must receive pre-approval from the program BEFORE project installation begins or equipment
is purchased, as indicated in Step 1 below. For detailed instructions, please refer to the terms and conditions on page 11 of this
application. If you have any questions, please call 855-849-8928.
Step 1: Determine Eligibility and Pre-Approval
Requirements
Equipment must be new, installed and operational in a private
facility that is in the Peoples Gas or North Shore Gas service
territory. The program begins June 1, 2016 and expires
December 31, 2017.
Multi-Family: The building has permanent or semi-permanent
residential tenants and contains three or more living units.
Pre-approval is required for prescriptive rebates greater than or
equal to $2,500 and all steam trap projects.
Small Business: The business uses less than 150,000 therms
of natural gas annually. Pre-approval is required for prescriptive
rebates greater than or equal to $2,500 and all steam trap
projects.
Step 2: Install New Equipment
New equipment must be installed and old equipment removed
or disconnected. Only new products and services that meet
the minimum energy efficiency specifications listed in this
application are eligible for rebates. Rebates for prescriptive
measures may not exceed 50% of the total project cost,
with the exception of steam traps. Rebates for steam trap
projects may not exceed 100% of the total project cost
for Commercial and Industrial customers only.
Multi-Family and Small Business customers must use
Partner Trade Allies to have the rebate cover 100% of the
project costs.
Step 3: Complete and Sign Application
Commercial and Industrial: The business uses 150,000
therms or more of natural gas annually.
Incomplete applications or missing information will cause
delays in or denial of payment. Applications must be received
within 30 days of installation.
Pre-approval is required for prescriptive rebates greater than or
equal to $10,000 and all steam trap projects.
Step 4: Include Documentation
Equipment not eligible for prescriptive rebates may be eligible
for custom rebates. Rebates are only made available to help
influence and implement projects that otherwise would not be
completed, or to complete projects sooner than currently or
previously scheduled.
In addition to any specific requirements for your project,
submissions must include the following:
a) Itemized invoices including costs for equipment
installed and installation labor. Note: Internal labor
cannot be included in the cost of the project.
b) The original equipment manufacturer (OEM)
specification sheet(s) that show products meet
required program standards.
c) A copy of the customer’s recent Peoples Gas or
North Shore Gas utility bill and third-party supply
bill, if applicable.

insulation measures are for space heating applications with a minimum of 4,000 and a maximum of 6,500 hours of operation annually. Insulation projects with more or
less hours of operation than those indicated above should apply to the custom rebate program. Pipe insulation rebates are capped at 250 linear feet per site. Contact the
program directly to authorize additional amounts of pipe insulation. Properties that have completed steam pipe insulation projects in the past 36 months are not
eligible to participate in the Multi-Family offering.

> Space Heating Hot Water Boilers
Specifications: To qualify for this measure the existing boiler must be a standard 80% efficient or atmospheric boiler. The installed boiler capacity must be used
80% or more for space heating and not be for process uses. Boilers must modulate their firing rate, have a sealed combustion unit, and must incorporate hot
water reset. Note that high-efficiency condensing boilers will provide the rated efficiency return only if return water is cold enough to condense the flue gases. If
the heating system cannot meet the requirement, a non-condensing boiler may be a better choice. Intake for combustion air and exhaust must be run to exterior.
Rebates are based on installed boiler capacity and can be no larger than existing boiler capacity. Redundant or back-up boilers do not qualify. Boiler plants with
two or more boilers are eligible for rebates on n-1 boilers where n = the number of boilers installed. Rated thermal efficiency is determined at full fire.

Specifications: For Multi-Family buildings with more than 48 living units, temperature sensors should be capped at 12 (four building corners – top/center/bottom
floors). The minimum number of sensors installed for buildings with less than 48 units is 5 sensors or 25% of the number of units, whichever is larger. Rebates for
controls only apply to buildings without existing boiler averaging controls or with averaging control systems incapable of being programmed to provide nighttime
setback. Buildings incorporating thermostatic controls on radiators are not eligible. Boiler staging must be included for multiple boiler systems (if applicable).
Controls must include outside air temperature cutout for the steam boiler plant. Averaging controls must include the capacity to provide nighttime setback and
shall be programmed after installation to provide at least 5 degrees of setback for at least 8 hours per day for all sensors. Two-pipe steam systems may qualify for
the averaging incentive, if there are no thermostatic controls on any of the building’s radiators. Any installation on a two-pipe system must be pre-approved.

Specifications: A single unit with multiple burners or modules is considered one unit. Customers are eligible for a boiler tune-up rebate once every 36 months.
Customers with a maintenance contract addressing boiler tune-ups are not eligible for this rebate. A Tune-Up Checklist (found on peoplesgasrebates.com and
northshoregasrebates.com) must be submitted with the application. If checklists are not complete and accurate, rebates may be denied. The combustion efficiency
of the unit must be tested pre- and post-tune-up and an increase in efficiency must be shown. If combustion analysis is not completed, legible, and accurate,
rebates may be denied. Boiler tune-up rebates are capped at 30 cents per MBH input up to $1,500 or 50% of the project cost, whichever is lower. If the boiler’s
make, model, and input capacity cannot be validated, your rebate may be capped at $250 per boiler.

setting during a loss of power for at least 10 hours. Additionally, the controls shall have a manual override that allows temporary operation of the system for up to 2
hours; a manually operated timer capable of being adjusted up to 2 hours, or an occupancy sensor. The thermostat shall be capable of automatically adjusting the
daily start time of the HVAC system in order to bring each space to the desired occupied temperature immediately prior to scheduled occupancy. For Multi-Family
