Offset utility installation costs and improve your project’s bottom line by outfitting your apartment building with natural gas amenities and appliances.

The Oklahoma Natural Gas Multi-Family Reimbursement Program allows developers who install natural gas amenities and appliances in their apartment buildings to earn up to $4,000 per unit [1] to cover the cost of venting and piping. [2]

Developers can earn additional rebates with the purchase and installation of energy-efficient natural gas appliances.

key benefits

A reimbursement for you. More value for your tenants.

Cover construction costs

Reimbursement funds of up to $4,000 per unit can offset upfront capital costs of construction and installation with natural gas piping and venting. You may even save money depending on the energy sources used in the project.

Make your building stand out in the rental market

Make your apartment more appealing to potential tenants with luxury natural gas amenities. A more competitive apartment building can reduce vacancy periods and minimize renter turnover, which can often be costly.

Improve yield on cost ratio

Offering your tenants natural gas amenities and appliances has the potential to increase your operating income. You may be able to charge a premium on rent and save money on lower ongoing maintenance and utility costs.

Save rentable square footage

Tankless water heaters, which run on natural gas, are much smaller than traditional storage tank water heaters, allowing you to optimize valuable square footage in each unit. Tankless water heaters also provide your tenants with infinite hot water and lower bills.

appeal to tenants

The rental market is changing and more competitive than ever. Natural gas can help make your building stand out in a crowded landscape.

From millennials to baby boomers, Americans are changing what home ownership looks like, preferring to rent rather than purchase a home. Young professionals are staying single longer and enjoying the convenience of renting, while older empty nesters want to downsize and simplify their lifestyles.

However, renters still desire the amenities that a house offers. By offering natural gas appliances and luxury experiences, you can market your apartment directly to these potential tenants.

Reasons to choose natural gas

Natural gas offers immediate, infinite and precise heat

Natural gas delivers warmer heat, faster. It provides luxury experiences like an infinite supply of hot water and precision temperature control when cooking a meal. Plus, you can save money with natural gas appliances because of the lower maintenance and repair costs.

Natural gas is more environmentally friendly

Today’s renters are conscious of the environmental impacts of their lifestyle choices. Natural gas offers a more energy-efficient alternative to electricity. It’s worth pointing out to tenants that not only can they reduce carbon emissions by living in a unit powered by natural gas, they can also save money on their energy bills.
