Increase your sales of energy-saving lighting equipment with assistance from our Lighting Efficiency program. Our customers can earn rebates on a wide range of lighting efficiency projects including retrofits on existing systems, new building installations, custom applications and lighting redesign studies.
Customers can use our rebates to offset the cost of their lighting efficiency projects and speed up their payback. Help them reduce energy use while they increase the lighting quality in their business.
Customers can choose from six ways to lower their lighting costs and earn rebates:
Available for existing facilities of any size, these rebates offset the cost of installing new, more efficient lighting than what customers currently have.
Available for new facilities or those going through major renovations, we reward customers for choosing more efficient lighting than standard options.
Available for energy-saving lighting projects not included in our prescriptive rebate program. Requires preapproval before equipment purchase and installation.
Can help determine the proper lighting levels for customers’ space. We help fund studies and offer cash rebates of up to $400 per kW saved when customers make recommended changes. Requires preapproval.
The One-Stop Efficiency Shop offers special rebates and services for small and mid-sized businesses with facility electric demand of 400 kW or less.
