Commercial Boiler Program

Last updated: 16 April 2019

The Commercial Boiler Program is designed to encourage the use of high-efficiency natural gas hydronic space-heating systems in commercial new construction and retrofits. Available through SaskEnergy Commercial Network Members located across Saskatchewan, the program provides incentives to help offset the incremental price of a high efficiency natural gas condensing boiler over the purchase price of a standard-efficiency boiler. Incentives are based upon space-heating, ventilating, domestic hot water load and type of equipment installed. To qualify for the program, a boiler plant must have an input rating of 400,000 BTU or higher.

Delivered through SaskEnergy Commercial Network Members, the Commercial Boiler Program is designed to encourage the use of appropriately sized high-efficiency natural gas hydronic space-heating systems in commercial new construction and retrofit applications. This offer is funded by SaskEnergy and SaskPower and is available from December 1, 2015 until November 30, 2017.

Purchase price incentives are based upon the installed BTU input of the qualifying equipment. They will be calculated as follows:

Boiler incentives for condensing boilers will be calculated as follows:

    • $10 per 1,000 BTU/hr for the first 600,000 BTU/hr
    • $3 per 1,000 BTU/hr above 600,000 BTU/hr
    • Maximum eligible incentive is $40,200

Boiler incentives for near condensing boilers will only be offered if used in a hybrid system with at least one condensing boiler. In this case, near condensing boilers are eligible for the following incentive:

  • $3 per 1,000 BTU/hr.
