Are there rebates for switching to LED lighting products?

Contact your local energy provider

We encourage you to contact your local energy provider for details about what types of rebates are offered for installing LED lighting.

Prescriptive rebates are those that a have a particular prescribed dollar amount for the respective application.  As long as the proposed fixtures are within the specified range of acceptable options, the LED fixture can be installed and a rebate can be applied for following completion of installation.

Custom rebates offered by energy providers often entail that the proposed LED lighting solution must be preapproved by the energy company before the fixtures are installed.

DSIREusa.org is a helpful website intended to allow consumers and businesses to search for energy-efficiency incentives on a state-by-state basis.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 created the Energy Efficient Commercial Buildings Deduction, which allows building owners to deduct the entire cost of a lighting or building upgrade in the year the equipment is placed in service.  It is subject to a cap.  You can learn more by visiting the lightingtaxdeduction.org website.
