Public Sector Natural Gas Boiler Tune-Up Program
The Boiler Tune-Up Program provides cash incentives for projects that increase the natural gas efficiency of local governments, municipal corporations, public school districts, community college districts, public universities, and state/federal facilities located in the service territories of Ameren Illinois (“Ameren”), Nicor Gas (“Nicor”), Peoples Gas (“Peoples”), and/or North Shore Gas (“North Shore”).
The Boiler Tune-Up Program encourages the owners of natural gas boilers to invest in a Boiler Tune-Up conducted by a qualified contractor. The Boiler Tune-Up should result, on average, in up to 6 percent efficiency gain in the operation of the boiler resulting in payback periods in most cases of less than six months. While conducting the Boiler Tune-Up, the program encourages the contractors to look for further energy savings opportunities within the boiler system. Mechanical (pipe) insulation repair/installment and steam trap repair/replacements both qualify for incentives under the Boiler Tune-Up Program. Other energy saving measures (not covered under this program offering), can also be identified by the contractors and incentives for these measures can be applied for separately through the DCEO Standard or Custom Programs.
