Light Your Way To Savings

Lighting Incentives

Start planning your 2018 project and take advantage of some of our highest incentives ever.

Cash incentives are available for a variety of lighting projects, including:

  • Replace T12s with high-performance T8 or T5 lamps

  • LED exit signs

  • Interior LED lighting

  • LED case lighting

  • Highbay lighting replacements
