Lighting Rebate Program
Receive rebates and reduce operating costs.
Thank you for your interest and support of OPPD’s business rebate programs. We had an incredible response this year, and due to the high participation rate, we anticipate the 2018 business rebate budget will be exhausted by the end of April. Please work with your Trade Ally to submit any applications as soon as possible and remember that only a pre-approval email from OPPD will ensure that rebate dollars have been set aside for your project.

Choose a Lighting Trade Ally
Trade Allies are contractors that have been approved by OPPD to work on lighting incentive projects. These companies have completed OPPD training and will provide lighting audits and proposals at no cost or obligation. They will also complete all documentation needed for the incentive.
Custom Incentives are available for many lighting projects. If you are considering a lighting retrofit that isn’t listed on the rebate reference sheet you may still qualify for a custom incentive. Contact your Lighting Trade Ally directly to be sure.
