Lighting Rebates by Region

One of the major benefits of adopting solid-state lighting (LED lighting) is energy efficiency. Many municipal and provincial/state utilities provide lighting rebates for adopting such energy efficient lighting. Most of these rebates require ENERGY STAR qualification for smaller residential and commercial fixtures and DLC qualification for larger commercial and industrial fixtures. The links below provide more information on local markets where these qualifications can make a significant business impact:
