custom rebates

​Maximize your limited budget with custom rebates — if your energy-saving project doesn’t appear on our list of prescriptive rebates, it may qualify for a custom rebate.

energy tips
  • Replace your aging HVAC system  with a properly sized ENERGY STAR® qualified model for maximum efficiency.
  • High-use lights and older fixtures are prime candidates for an upgrade - assess them first.
  • Replace all lamps when they reach 70% of their expected life, rather than on an individual basis. This reduces lighting maintenance costs by 25% or more. Save even more when you clean lamps and fixtures at the same time.
  • Save with CFLs - they produce 75% less heat and last 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
  • Reduce lighting energy use  by 15–25% when you replace overhead T12 fluorescent lamps and magnetic ballasts with premium efficient T8 fluorescent lamps and electronic ballasts.
  • Install occupancy sensors and controls  to save energy when areas are empty.
