Power Smart Incentives for Tubular LEDs  

Tubular LED replacements for T12 and T8 linear fluorescent lamps are achieving wider commercial acceptance. However, Power Smart is not currently offering prescriptive (one-to-one) replacement incentives in the Power Smart Express program.

TLED products are considered in Power Smart Partner Custom incentive offers, however.

Get a full update on Tubular LED incentives in our Power Smart Express updates section.

Changes to lighting incentives effective December 31, 2014:

The General Service Lighting (GSL) legislation will come into effect December 31, 2014 at 5:00 p.m. Retrofits of existing screw-in incandescent 40W and 60W A lamps will be calculated using a new (lower) baseline set by the new standard, which will impact the level of incentives.

The new lighting calculator will be available on January 1, 2015.

Bonus offer for Self-Serve Incentive (SIP) projects ends soon

The bonus offer for SIP eligible lighting or compressed air (40 to 200 horsepower) is ending soon. Project applications must be submitted for pre-approval by December 31, 2014 and completed (submit online declaration and invoices) by March 31, 2015.
