As a Minnesota Trade Partner, you have an opportunity to receive cash incentives when customers earn rebates through our Heating Efficiency program. Customers can earn rebates when they replace or upgrade their natural gas-fired boilers, furnaces, commercial water heaters and auxiliary equipment. Boiler energy improvements also qualify such as tune-ups and steam-trap repair & replacement.
The efficiency requirements for boilers have changed and here is the current chart.
|Full Load Efficiency Requirements|
|Boiler type||New boiler size||Unit of measurement|
|Steam or Hot Water||<300,000 BTU/h||AFUE|
|Steam or Hot Water||≤ 300,000 BTU/h and
|Et (Thermal Eff)|
|Hot Water only||>2,500,000 BTU/h||Ec (Combustion Eff)|
|Steam only||>2,500,000 BTU/h||Et (Thermal Eff)|
Boiler tune-ups - effective 3-23-18 - the documentation requirements have been expanded to accept the following:
Boiler replacement - effective 6-28-18 - the policy regarding this measure has been clarified regarding the Minnesota State Boiler Inspection report and other acceptable forms of documentation to determine the age of the boiler.
Replacement boiler rebates are available to eligible customers who are replacing a functioning or working boiler less than 30 years old. The replacement boiler must be the same size or smaller in order to qualify for the replacement boiler rebate otherwise the rebate will revert to the new boiler rebate.
New Boiler rebates are available to eligible customers who install a boiler where on never existed, or replacing a non-operating (non-working) boiler or if the replacement boiler is larger than the boiler that was removed.
Trade incentives and rebates can help increase your sales and provide benefits to customers:
