LED Lighting Incentive
LED lights can improve the quality of light in your facility while also helping you save on energy and maintenance costs. Newer LED options can create a more vibrant work environment for your employees and the important work they do and even enhance security outside of your facility. Technologies like occupancy sensors and photocells can conserve energy by automatically turning lights on and off when not needed.
Lighting fixtures do not need to meet any Qualified Products List (QPL) requirements.
Lighting utilizes a baseline of T8, when updating less efficient lighting, to calculate incentive and recordable kWh.
Calculations from the PPEC must be submitted along with an online application for a complete project submission.
Preferred Partners Network (PPN) members have access to a Preferred Partners Energy Calculator (PPEC), which calculates variables like equipment and operating schedules—so you can make informed decisions.
All projects require pre-approval. DO NOT purchase, remove or install any equipment until all
pre-approval requirements are completed, and a formal Application Approval Notice has been received via email.
Funding is still available this year

Indoor and exterior lighting incentives available at $0.04 per annual kWh reduced.
The incentive is calculated by the PPEC using industry averages and is not based on the realized kWh savings of the project. Calculations based on realized kWh savings can be done for quick estimates but will not be accurate.
Sensor/scheduling ONLY projects are not eligible.
Exterior lighting includes all types of building and pole-mounted lighting including street lighting.
Agricultural LEDs, signage LEDs, cooler lights and LEDs replacing neon accent lighting (e.g., fast food signs) are eligible.
Indoor lighting can be a one-for-one replacement or re-grid.
