Save Big with a Bonus Rebate on LED Lighting

Fort Collins Utilities and Efficiency Works are offering a 25 percent BONUS rebate for commercial LED lighting upgrades.

If you’re still using fluorescent lights, now is the time to upgrade to LED technology. New LEDs are more affordable than ever and use roughly 50 percent less energy than fluorescents. They also provide better lighting and, unlike fluorescents, LEDs can be dimmed for additional energy savings.

The bonus rebate is applied in addition to current Efficiency Works incentives.

Hurry, this offer is for a limited time only and the project must be submitted by Nov. 15, 2018. Learn more at fcgov.com/bonus-lighting-rebate.
