Greater Minnesota Gas Home Energy Programs
As a valued customer, Greater Minnesota Gas offers you a variety of programs to help you save money while increasing the comfort and efficiency in your home.
Home Energy Audit
We make it easy for you to find simple ways to add comfort, save money, and reduce energy use in your home.
Schedule an appointment with one of our Energy Auditors and they will conduct a detailed energy analysis of your home. The audit will assess house tightness and efficiency of insulation and heating equipment in your home. A Building Performance Institute (BPI) trained auditor will install energy saving measures that are needed such as: a programmable thermostat, low flow showerheads, aerators and weather stripping on doors. Upon completion, they will give you a customized analysis and report specific to your home.
In addition to showing you simple ways to reduce energy costs, we will assist in larger savings opportunities by helping you determine any next steps that would be beneficial for your home. The Auditor will answer any questions and review the over $900 in rebates available from GMG that will help you save money.
It’s easy, convenient and costs just $50, which is credited back to you with any rebate work completed.
Efficient Water Measures Program
Do you have a shower or sink that wastes water? If you have older fixtures the answer is probably yes—and your dollars are going down the drain!
Our Efficient Water Measures program is free and we deliver the materials right to your home. We will send you a set of new fixtures for your shower, bathroom sink, and kitchen sink complete with simple instructions on how to install them yourself. This program is free to GMG customers but supplies are limited. Call today to get your free materials and start saving money through our Efficient Water Measures program.
Income Qualified Programs
Is your income level a financial barrier to a more energy efficient home? Through an initiative of the State of Minnesota, GMG provides our Home Energy Services programs free of charge to income qualified residents.
Program participation starts with an energy audit to assess efficiency of insulation and heating equipment in the home. During the audit, a Building Performance Institute (BPI) trained auditor will install energy-saving measures where needed, including a programmable thermostat, low flow showerheads and aerators, and door weather stripping. In addition, auditors will reprogram existing thermostats and lower thermostat settings on water heaters that are set above 120 degrees.
After the audit, we will prepare a specification document for weatherization or mechanical replacement, assign a trusted contractor to complete the work, and inspect the work for completeness, house tightness, and combustion appliance safety. The auditor may order other ventilation and health and safety measures to be added to any project. The program is free to customers who report that they meet the requirements for the income qualified program.
Income Qualified System Tune-Up Program
GMG will pay for the full cost of cleaning and tune-up on qualified residential customers’ heating systems. Customers may submit contractor invoice for payment by GMG, along with proof of income, or may submit proof of payment with a copy of the invoice for reimbursement.
