Webster Engineering manufacturers a line of high efficiency commercial and industrial burners. In many cases, upgrading to higher efficiency burners can qualify for energy savings rebates from your local gas, oil or electricity supplier. We’re not talking about the .00 per light bulb type of rebates but what they prefer to as “custom” rebates that could reach over 50% of the cost of a new project. The exact amount varies with each energy company but we have found custom rebates from many of the energy companies that we have contacted.
High turndown, low operating O2 levels, linkageless controls, TEMP A TRIM air density trim system, O2 trim systems are all operational characteristics (options) of a high efficiency Webster burner that can qualify for local rebates. These options can save BTUs and Kilo-watt Hours.
Webster and their local representatives can assist you in researching the potential for rebates, with payback analysis programs and dealing with your local energy companies. For a listing of potential “standard” rebates, go to http://www.dsireusa.org/ and click on your state. There will be a list of rebates available from your state’s energy companies. But please remember that additional digging is required to find the higher dollar “custom” rebates.
Why are the energy companies offering these rebates? So they do not have to build new power plants or gas plants to handle an increasing demand. Having you, their customers, become more efficient, keeps the overall demand in line.
