Utility Rebates

Lightening the Costs 

Utility RebatesMany utilities offer significant financial incentives to help commercial customers incorporate high efficiency features into their buildings.  By reducing power demand, not only do businesses reduce power and operating costs, but they benefit the community by reducing the need to build more capacity (new power plants).  The price of new capacity is typically passed along to all local utility customers in the form of rate increases.

Energy & Environment is a Trade Ally in Georgia Power's Commercial Energy Efficiency program.
We help customers tailor their lighting efficiency solutions to take advantage of Georgia Power lighting rebates.   Like all rebate programs, the paperwork for the Georgia Power rebates can be confusing. We are familiar with the idiosyncrasies of the program and are happy to handle rebate coordination as another service of a comprehensive lighting retrofit. 

Current rebates available in Georgia:

Custom Lighting Incentives

·  Fluorescent Lighting

·  HID Lighting

·  Other Lighting

Incentive is based on the amount of watts saved by the new fixtures relative to the old.  Incentive amount=$0.20 per watt reduced

EXAMPLE: Replace a 100W fixture
with a 60W fixture

-  40 watt savings

-  Multiply 40 watts by $0.20/watt savings

-  $8.00 incentive per fixture

·  New Construction Custom Lighting

Eligibility is based on achieving a Lighting Power Density (LPD) 30% below the ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Standard.

EXAMPLE: A 1000 sq.ft. motel space with seven 100 watt fixtures.

-  Divide the 700 total watts by 1000 sq.ft.

-  LPD = 0.7 watts/sq.ft.

-  Meets maximum eligible for motel: 0.70
