As a business owner, you look for investments with an attractive rate of return. Energy-efficient lighting is just such an investment. As much as 40 percent of your electric bill may be just keeping the lights on.

Rebates cannot exceed 70 percent of the installed cost (materials and reasonable labor). You will receive the lesser of the rebate amount, listed below or on the next page, or 70 percent of installed cost.
