Twelve local businesses received $81,727 in rebates from NPU for installing energy-efficient lighting in or around their facilities during the first quarter of 2017. In addition to the rebates, these customers will save an estimated $68,037 on their energy bills each year going forward.

Companies that took advantage of the programs include Freeport McMoRan, Epicure Brewing and Plaza Enterprise and Staples, both on Salem Turnpike.

NPU provides rebates to business customers for replacing traditional incandescent lighting with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and high-efficiency T8 linear fluorescent tubes. NPU customers receive rebates of 35% for the purchase of high efficient lamps and ballasts.

NPU also offers a 0% interest loan program for lighting upgrades with local lenders.
