It is easy for businesses to save electricity and cut energy costs by installing high-efficiency lighting. Now with paper and instant rebates, you can enjoy all the energy-saving benefits without paying a premium price. What a bright idea!

Use up to 75% Less Energy

Whether you are looking to replace your interior or exterior commercial lighting, there is an energy-saving solution regardless of the application. And rebates available through the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund help to offset the premium price of lighting, making energy-saving lighting fixtures and bulbs a cost-effective choice.

Receive rebates on eligible replacement lamps instantly at participating distributors.  Click on the Instant Rebates tab to learn more.

Finding the right energy-efficient lighting solution is easy. We work with ENERGY STAR® and the DesignLights Consortium® to promote the most energy-efficient lighting technologies available and make them affordable through the Express Service Lighting Rebate program. You have access to rebates for a wide range of lighting, including T8 and T5 systems, LED Systems, exit signs, lighting controls and LED lights for coolers, freezers and refrigerator shelving.

ENERGY STAR certified commercial light fixtures use up to 75 percent less energy and last 10-50 times longer than incandescent lighting. Plus, qualified fixtures produce low heat, which reduces heating loads. LED options provide optimal precision lighting for commercial applications.

For a list of qualifying commercial lighting, see the application on your utility’s website. For additional information, visit websites for the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE), DesignLights Consortium and ENERGY STAR.

Make a smart energy choice and upgrade your lighting now.
