Natural Gas Efficiency Infrastructure Investment Program

Natural Gas Efficiency Infrastructure Investment Program

NYSEG and RG&E will provide funding assistance up to $100,000 per project to fund natural gas related infrastructure improvements to facilitate more efficient use of gas on equipment either owned by the companies or the customer (as directed by the companies). These improvements can involve individual customers or be associated with a business/industrial park.

For any new customers, assistance would be targeted to industrial or similar processes and shall not be used primarily for space heating.

Actual grant awards would be commensurate with the magnitude of each project including capital investment and infrastructure improvements. 

The primary intent of this program is to retain and/or increase employment through more efficient utilization of natural gas.

  • Companies must have first offered and explained beneficial electrification options to the customer.
  • Project must hold the companies harmless in regard to any contaminant liability.
  • Applicant must demonstrate that financial assistance from this program will be a benefit to attracting new investment activity.
  • Facility must be located within the companies’ service areas.
  • Recipient must be the owner or leaseholder of facility and current in payments to the companies (existing customers).
  • Project must demonstrate ability to retain and/or attract new employment.
