Commercial & Industrial Custom Natural Gas & Electric Incentive Program

NIPSCO’s Commercial and Industrial Custom Electric and Natural Gas Incentive Program offers financial incentives to qualifying large commercial, industrial, non-profit, governmental and institutional customers for installing new energy-saving equipment. Custom incentives are designed for more complicated projects, or those that incorporate alternative technologies. Customer pre-approval is required for all Custom incentives.

Under this program, commercial and industrial customers planning to upgrade or invest in a new energy efficiency project(s) will receive a rebate based on the amount of kilowatt hours (kWh) estimated to be saved by the installation of the new equipment or systems.

NIPSCO has partnered with Franklin Energy Services, LLC, an industry leader, specializing in the implementation of energy efficiency and renewable energy programs for utilities and states, to administer the program.

What type of projects qualify?

Eligible projects, which are designed by the customer, may consist of the retrofit or replacement of existing equipment/systems that result in energy savings.
