Lighting Rebates

Cash Incentives for Energy-Efficient Lighting
Receive cash incentives for lighting retrofits in existing buildings, helping reduce electric bills and improve lighting quality.

Limited time offer
A 25 percent rebate bonus is available on new LED fixtures for any project pre-approved, completed and submitted for final payment by Nov. 15, 2018.

Get Started
Begin by completing an application with Efficiency Works. Also check out the quick reference guide (PDF 1.3MB) for federal light bulb legislation.

Incentives are based on the wattage reduction from the new to old lighting equipment and typically cover 25-50% of the project cost.
