Lighting Rebates

For replacing or improving existing inefficient equipment or systems, you may earn a rebate of $175 per kilowatt (kW) reduction in electric demand. You may also earn an additional $50 per kW controlled by installing new energy efficiency enhancements (such as lighting occupancy sensors). See our Lighting Rebate Application for custom lighting projects.

Examples of equipment that may be eligible for rebates are energy efficient new lighting fixtures, lighting occupancy sensors, electric motors, variable frequency drives, refrigeration, energy managements systems, and just about anything else that uses electricity more efficiently and reduces or controls electric load at your facility!

HVAC & Insulation Rebates

In addition to receiving rebates for energy efficiency projects which reduce kW demand, business customers can now receive rebates for installing new energy efficient heating & air equipment or adding insulation at your business! Multiple rebate levels are available for energy efficient commercial HVAC equipment, rebates are based on the size (in tons) of the new heating & air equipment. For full HVAC rebate information, see our HVAC Rebate Application.

Also, now receive rebates for adding attic, ceiling or wall insulation at your business as well! Receive $0.15 per square foot of insulation added to your attic or ceiling, $0.35 per square foot of insulation added to exterior walls and $0.30 per square foot added to floors or crawlspaces.
