Incentives for Switching to Natural Gas

Central Hudson offers a range of energy efficiency equipment incentives to residential customers connecting their home to natural gas, as well a bonus incentive applicable when working with a participating Blue Shield Trade Ally. We also offer a turnkey solution which leverages pre-negotiated equipment and labor discounts to provide customers with a cost-effective, one-stop solution. Every new natural gas customer receives a free gas service line installation (a $4,500 value). Please review the information below as applicable to your individual circumstances. In order to qualify for the program, Central Hudson will conduct an analysis of the feasibility and cost to deliver natural gas to your home and the amount of natural gas that would be consumed annually. Each project is carefully reviewed. Contact us today to get started!
