Timing is Everything
Act now to win with lighting rebates

As energy efficient LED lighting becomes main stream, electric utility companies are decreasing rebates and policy makers have suggested phasing out incentive programs. Take advantage of available funds while they last.

Now is the time to upgrade your facility lighting. Remaining energy-efficiency rebates are especially strong for making the switch from HID to LED lighting. Make sure your warehouse, industrial setting or parking lot lighting is as safe, efficient and effective as possible.

Save on energy and maintenance costs while improving employee productivity and safety.

  • LEDs use up to 75% less energy, last up to 25 times longer
  • Save at least $120 in energy costs over the life of the bulb
  • LED bulbs last up to 12 years or more, reducing replacement and maintenance costs significantly
  • LED bulbs are also more durable, reducing instances of breakage
