Flathead Electric Cooperative, in conjunction with Bonneville Power Administration, encourages energy efficiency in the commercial sector by providing a commercial lighting retro-fit rebate program and a new construction lighting rebate program. When certain fixtures and/or bulbs are replaced with more efficient ones, or new high-efficiency fixtures are purchased, facility-owners may be eligible for a rebate that will help to offset the cost. In most cases the rebate will cover a significant portion of the initial cost. Certain restrictions apply and can be found on the application form. The rebate must be pre-approved by Flathead Electric Cooperative prior to the measures being installed and will be the lesser of 70% of the actual project cost, or the per fixture rebate total as calculated on the Lighting Rebate Verification Reports. Interested customers should check the verification form for either the new construction or retro-fit program.
