Incentive Program

Our Natural Gas Incentive Program

The city of Rocky Mount Energy Resources department offers an incentive program to encourage homeowners, builders, developers, general contractors and restaurant owners to install natural gas appliances in new construction for residential, commercial and industrial buildings outside the city's electric territory. New construction includes additions and expansion projects that add new space to an existing structure. Customers converting or replacing an appliance to natural gas from a fuel source other than the city's electric system, such as propane, are also eligible for the incentive program.

Natural Gas Equipment Eligible for Incentives Include:
  • New installation of: water heater when installed in combination with natural gas as the primary heating source, clothes dryer, cooking range and restaurant cooking equipment to include fryers, griddles, ovens, and/or steamers.

  • Conversion or replacement of: water heater, heating system(s), clothes dryer, cooking range and restaurant cooking equipment to include fryers, griddles, ovens, and/or steamers. (Replacement of existing natural gas appliances served by the city are not eligible for this program.)

Making application does not guarantee incentive payment, but simply notifies Energy Resources of the customer's intent to apply for the incentives. The installation of eligible natural gas equipment will be verified at the time the gas division sets the gas meter. The meter can only be set after all natural gas equipment installations pass the required local inspection process. Once the meter is set and the eligible natural gas equipment installation is verified, the incentive payment check to the customer will be processed. For more information, email or call (252) 972-1269.
