17 customers earn $110,000 in rebates by switching to energy-efficient lighting, equipment

Seventeen NPU Commercial and Industrial customers participated in the efficiency programs offered by NPU during the first three months of 2016, earning $110,695 in rebates. These customers will also save nearly $100,000 on their energy bills each year as a result of the measures taken to improve their energy efficiency.

“We continue to have great success in helping our commercial and industrial customers earn rebates while saving money every month,” said Fawn Walker, NPU’s Energy Efficiency Programs Coordinator. “And while we’ve done in the past, we know there are still more customers that we can help – and hope to do so throughout the rest of this year.”

Commercial customers of all sizes can participate in NPU efficiency programs. In the first quarter of 2016, customers earned rebates ranging from $250 for a small lighting upgrade to $16,000 for a significant lighting retrofit and conversion as part of a major renovation project.

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.
