Incentives are available to multifamily developers who install natural gas space and water heating measures rather than electric. An incentive of $2,000 per unit is available for installation of natural gas space heat and natural gas water heat. Multifamily is defined as 5 or more units per building for this incentive. Incentives are available for new construction only. Supplemental electric heat is allowable in the units as long as 75% of the unit is heated with natural gas. Qualifying water heating applications can either be individual natural gas hot water heaters in each unit or a central natural gas hot water system.
