Rebate programs revised for 2009
2008 was a great year for energy efficiency programs. Utilities from across the nation are reporting the success of their energy efficiency efforts last year. Efficiency programs have saved nearly 50 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions from entering the atmosphere. That's equivalent to the emissions from 9 million vehicles!1 On top of that, some programs proved so successful that they ran out of funding fairly early in the year from the high demand.
With these successes in mind, the 2009 rebate programs have started to come out. More areas in the country are now offering rebates, and for many existing programs, the amount has gone up. With almost $2 billion in rebates available, you're missing out if you aren't taking advantage of these programs.1
This map shows the states that have lighting rebates for 2009 so far. Organizations in 36 of the states currently offer a lighting rebate to commercial end users.
