Air curtain rebates

​Air curtains deliver a controlled stream of air that helps separate indoor and outdoor environments. They are often found on high-traffic doorways in retail and commercial buildings, but the benefit of keeping heated or conditioned air in and drafts out where doors are frequently open can be realized in industrial facilities too. Our rebates can help you save on installing new air curtains to reduce heat waste and energy costs.

Eligibility requirements*

  1. You must be a FortisBC commercial rate class natural gas customer. 
  2. You must be the property owner or long-term leaseholder of an industrial facility.
  3. Your facility must use natural gas as an input to industrial production.**

*You can find a complete list of eligibility requirements in the terms and conditions.
**Industrial production is a manufacturing or transformative process in which raw materials are transformed into finished goods for the purpose of resale with the use of machines, tools and labour.
