How long do I have to apply for the contractor incentive?

If your W-9 and contractor license number are on file with Oklahoma Natural Gas, Oklahoma Natural Gas must receive completed applications from your customer within 90 days after the upgrade or inspection has been completed. Please keep in mind that rebates amounts are limited, and are available on a first-come, first-served basis until program funds are depleted.

When will I get my rebate?

May my incentive be applied to my Oklahoma Natural Gas bill balance or may I receive it in cash?

I installed a natural gas water heater a few months ago; am I still eligible for the contractor incentive?

The rebate program begins September 15, 2011. Services provided before this date are not eligible for a rebate. Incentives are contingent and payable based upon the successful processing of the customer’s application for a rebate.

I am not an Oklahoma licensed contractor; may I still apply for the incentive program?

The incentive program is only available to Oklahoma licensed contractors. 

My customers contract with me to have their HVAC systems inspected annually. Will they still qualify for the furnace checkup rebate? If so, how do they apply, and what do they use for their invoice since they have already paid for the inspection service?

Yes, if services are provided on or after the September 15, 2011, program start date.  Customers should submit the 26-Point Heating-System Checklist along with a supportive invoice and completed application.

Important Information:
Rebates may be available to any current or prospective Oklahoma Natural Gas customer. Only qualified natural gas equipment purchased, installed or serviced after September 14, 2011, will be considered for a rebate. Oklahoma Natural Gas encourages each contractor and customer to review all program eligibility requirements.

Incentive and rebate checks will be mailed approximately six to eight weeks after approval, subject to availability of program funds. Completed applications will be reviewed and processed by Oklahoma Natural Gas on a first-come, first-served basis until program funds are depleted.

Incentive programs are available to plumbers and HVAC contractors licensed in the state of Oklahoma. The customer is responsible for the full cost and installation of the equipment. To be eligible for the incentive, the customer must have an active Oklahoma Natural Gas account, and the company must receive the completed documents within 90 days after installation. The incentive is for the installation of new equipment in a new or existing individually metered residential home. Contractor and customer information is submitted together on the customer’s application. Contractor is responsible for providing the customer all applicable information and required documentation. Contractor incentive is contingent upon the approved processing of the customer’s rebate. A form W-9 from the contractor must be on file with Oklahoma Natural Gas.
