Midstream Instant Savings Pilot Program

  • How does a midstream program work?
    • The equipment incentive is provided as an instant discount when a contractor purchases eligible equipment from a participating distributor.
    • This eliminates the need for completing and submitting an incentive application.
    • Reduces the upfront costs for you and your residential customers to purchase high-efficiency equipment.
    • The full incentive amount must be passed along to the homeowner.
    • A line item must be included on the invoice to the customer indicating the instant incentive amount.
