Rebates and Incentives
The federal government and local municipalities offer a number of incentives and government rebates for LED lighting. Usage of many of uSaveLED’s energy-efficient LED lighting options qualifies businesses and commercial property owners for these governmental rebates and incentives. Local and federal rebates and incentives can help offset the cost of installing energy-efficient LED lighting, in addition to the operational savings recognized through lower utility and maintenance costs.
Most incentives and government rebates for LED lighting require specific certifications to qualify, such as Design Light Consortium (DLC) and Energy Star, and all LED lighting products offered through uSaveLED clearly indicate the certifications associated with each individual product. Additionally, installing LED lighting is a big step towards attaining LEED certification, which can result in eligibility for additional rebates and incentives.
uSaveLED continually monitors changing governmental programs, advising commercial customers of their eligibility for any available incentives and government rebates for LED lighting and helping them through the process of obtaining these rebates and incentives.
