Efficient and effective lighting is a must for any business – especially when it comes to site safety. The Lighting program offers rebates for upgrading the permanent lighting at your facility. Conditioned or non-conditioned space lighting systems, along with hardwired compact fluorescent fixtures may qualify. New construction projects do not qualify for this rebate.
How the program works
Earn a rebate of $250 per kilowatt (kW) reduction* when you install energy-efficient lighting technology and systems that help reduce your demand for electricity.
Earn a rebate of $200 per kilowatt (kW) reduction* when you install energy-efficient lighting technology and systems that help reduce your demand for electricity. Please note that stadium lighting, sports field lighting, and landscape lighting are not eligible for this rebate.
