The concept of utility companies handing out checks as a reward for being a better energy consumer sounded too good to be true.
In these early days of efficiency programs, lighting rebates and incentives were introduced into the discussion that would typically generate common questions…
“How much extra will that cost me?”
“Is it a lot of extra work?”
“What’s the catch?”
Several years later, and with a successful track record of $3.8M in rebates managed and returned to our customers, we understand the process, see the value know without a doubt it is still the real deal.
As a company considering a property wide lighting project, what does this mean to you?
- SAVE MORE Lighting rebates mean greater savings to you. Let’s say you want to retrofit all of your stores to garner savings off your electric bill first and foremost as well as become a more energy efficient corporate citizen. A lot of utility companies understand this and are offering cash/credit rebates to help you to become greener and more efficient. Do the project, have measurable kWh savings, receive a rebate. Programs can be custom or prescriptive; we’ll handle that part for you.
- DO MORE Maybe there’s a project that’s not even made it on to your list. You haven’t considered that improvement, don’t have the budget for it at the moment, or it’s in an area that you aren’t currently targeting. It’s a big decision and a large expenditure. Some utility companies offer cash incentives for you to initiate and move forward on a project that you otherwise would not have considered without a potential monetary incentive. In these situations the utility will let you know if you qualify.
Whether the project was pre-planned and took advantage of an existing rebate or the offered incentive was the project catalyst, the end result is the same. Your organization is reaping the energy savings month after month, year after year.
- Your location is well lit with quality lighting.
- The kWh savings generated by this project benefits you, your neighbors, and the utility companies.
