The Nicor Gas Energy Efficiency Program offers rebates and energy efficiency tools to help customers save energy and money. Increased energy efficiency is now more affordable with this program, designed to educate customers about the benefits of high-efficiency, natural gas-saving products and to encourage customers to install these products by providing rebates.
Current rebate offers are available for qualifying purchases and installations completed between January 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021. Applications must be submitted within 90 days of installation, or by January 31, 2022, whichever comes first.
High-efficiency energy-saving products, including furnaces and boilers, can help you save energy and money. On average, nearly half of a home’s energy bills go to heating and cooling your home. By installing high-efficiency products, you can reduce the amount of energy you use to heat your home for years to come. With rebates from the Nicor Gas Energy Efficiency Program, improving your home's efficiency is more affordable.
Use of a professional contractor for the installation of any qualifying product(s) is required.

If additional information is needed to complete your application, you will be contacted by a program representative.
The Nicor Gas Energy Efficiency Program conducts an on-site verification from a sampling of program participants. By signing your rebate application, you have agreed to allow access to your home and the rebated product for verification. If selected for this verification, you will be contacted and asked to participate.
Please consult with your tax advisor to determine if residential energy efficiency product rebates are considered taxable by the IRS.

Online applications must be submitted online, and mail-in applications must be postmarked within 90 days of installation, or by January 31, 2022, whichever comes first. Products must be installed and fully operational prior to submitting a rebate application.

You will be asked by your contractor to sign the invoice, confirming you received the rebate as an instant discount, agreeing to applicable program terms and conditions, and releasing the payment of the rebate to your contractor. Your contractor will then receive the rebate check from Nicor Gas directly.
