The country is going green!
Are you taking advantage of the lucrative rebate programs out there? Buildings in thousands of zip codes across the US are eligible for lighting efficiency rebates from state organizations and local utilities. These programs often help reduce the initial cost of upgrading lighting systems by providing incentives to customers. These incentives can range anywhere from $.50 per lamp to $450 per fixture and can include popular technologies like T8s, ceramic metal halide fixtures, hardwired compact fluorescent fixtures, LED exit signs, induction lighting systems and much more.
This map shows the states that have lighting rebates for 2008. Organizations in 36 of the states currently offer a lighting rebate to commercial end users. In 2009, look for the country to go even more green as more utilities and state organizations role out plans to reduce the electric demand from their customers.
