PPL Electric Utilities offers rebates and incentives for commercial and industrial products installed in their service area. The program offers rebates for lighting, heat pumps, refrigeration measures, fans and many other options. Equipment rebates apply to leased or owned buildings. Rebates are designed to reimburse commercial customers for about 50% of the added cost for buying high efficiency equipment. Occupancy sensors, LED exit signs, and T5 and T8 fluorescents are the most popular pieces of equipment purchased through this program. Lamp incentives are administered through bulb manufacturers and retailers who sell the bulbs at a reduced price and bill PPL Electric Utilities for the remainder of the cost.

Rebates are retro-active to June 1, 2013. Follow all instructions and guidelines in order to receive rebates. The program is subject to change and availability of funding.
