Avista Rebates

Line Excess Allowance Program (LEAP)

Cash in on savings when you switch to natural gas

If you're a Washington homeowner converting to natural gas, we have a program that may help you pay for the cost of purchasing and installing new natural as equipment — no matter what fuel you're currently using to heat your home. You don't even have to be an Avista customer.

The Washington Line Excess Allowance Program (LEAP):

  • Provides residential customers with an “allowance” of $4,482 to help pay for the cost of connecting to our natural gas system.*
  • If the cost to connect to our system is less than the allowance amount, the excess remaining may be applied toward the purchase and installation of a new, high-efficient (90% AFUE or greater) natural gas furnace or boiler, and/or a new natural gas water heater.
  • Available to Avista's electric customers as well as homeowners who are not an Avista customer (Washington only, some restrictions apply).

*This program is not available for new construction, or situations in which natural gas piping has already been installed to the residence.
