Monthly Theme: Future of Natural Gas

Natural Gas Appliance: The Rebate Rally

Thursday, September 8 from 2:00 pm to 2:30 pm CST

Presenter: Nicole Graham, Senior Market Analyst, Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia

The Rebate Rally is a unique program created for Municipally-owned natural gas systems to come together and collectively promote the use of natural gas while offering appliance rebates to customers and incentives to contractors. Typically, it can be challenging for a municipal gas system to execute a successful rebate initiative on its own, as these aren’t necessarily equipped with enough staff or resources needed to create and carry out such a program.

This project involved a collective approach of pooling together money and working with the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia to create a program that not only worked for all Municipals but also allowed for customization of rebate offerings. This webinar will provide more detail around the innovation and execution of the Rebate Rally program.
