Gas Engine Improvements

We offer financial incentives that help pay for the following improvements:

  • Conversions from rich-burn to lean-burn engines. This involves replacing old carburetion systems with advanced air-fuel-ratio control systems.
  • Engine rebuilds/replacements. These can help return the pump to its “best operating efficiency.”
  • Pump rebuilds/replacements. These can help return the pump to its “best operating point.”
  • Retrofitting the system with crankshaft-stabilized electronic ignition.

For qualifying installations, we provide financial incentives of up to 50 percent of the cost of energy you save in one year.

For any of these improvements, let us know your plans before you start work.
