UGI Save Smart Program Overview
The UGI Save Smart program is designed to empower businesses in Pennsylvania to make impactful changes to their existing or new commercial buildings. By focusing on larger projects rather than individual equipment rebates, UGI aims to accelerate the transition to energy-efficient practices. Businesses participating in this program can enjoy significant benefits, with rebates reaching up to $100,000 per project.
If your organization is looking for incentives and rebates outside of the UGI coverage area, we suggest reviewing our other blogs to find your area and utility provider.

Gas-Powered Equipment Upgrades
One of the key features of the UGI Natural Gas Business Rebates is the emphasis on gas-powered equipment upgrades. This includes a range of rebates for various equipment installations, each contributing to the overall energy efficiency of commercial buildings.
Commercial Gas Boilers
Businesses can benefit from a $2,000 rebate, plus an additional $2/MBH, when they purchase and install an ENERGY STAR® certified commercial gas boiler. The measurement unit MBH (1,000 BTU/hour) signifies the energy efficiency of the equipment. For instance, a 300,000 BTU ENERGY STAR® Commercial Boiler (300 MBH) would qualify for a substantial $2,600 rebate, making it a financially wise investment.
Commercial Gas Water Heaters
For those upgrading their water heating systems, a $4/MBH rebate awaits when purchasing and installing an ENERGY STAR® certified commercial gas water heater. This provides businesses with the opportunity to improve the efficiency and comfort of their facilities while enjoying financial incentives. The calculation is similar, with the MBH measurement determining the rebate amount.
Gas Unit Heaters
Businesses opting for 90+ AFUE gas unit heaters (warm air or low-intensity infrared) can secure a $2/MBH rebate. This encourages the adoption of high-efficiency heating solutions, contributing to both comfort and savings in commercial buildings.
The UGI Natural Gas Business Rebates extend to kitchen equipment, offering incentives for businesses looking to upgrade their facilities. From commercial dishwashers to gas fryers and griddles, there are rebates of up to $1,100 available, promoting the use of ENERGY STAR® certified appliances that contribute to energy efficiency in commercial kitchens.
Steam traps play a crucial role in facilities with steam systems. Businesses can earn a $50 rebate when they purchase and install steam traps, providing an incentive for the implementation of this energy-saving technology.
Grants for Small Businesses
Recognizing the importance of supporting small businesses, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection offers grants of up to $7,000. Small businesses with 100 or fewer full-time employees can apply for this grant when purchasing energy-efficient equipment or making upgrades. The upgrades must result in minimum annual savings of $500 and a 25% reduction in energy consumption.
