Commercial Lighting Program Update

As you know, we strive to make rebates easily accessible to all Vermonters and recognize that an instant point-of-purchase rebate reduces customer barriers. Effective July 1, Efficiency Vermont will move most product categories from rebate forms into SMARTLIGHT's instant discount program and increase the rebate for ENERGY STAR® connected A-Style bulbs.

The following products will be available through SMARTLIGHT as of July 1 and will be removed from both the Commercial Lighting and Agricultural Lighting & Equipment rebate forms. Additionally, the following SMARTLIGHT DLC fixtures are eligible for an increased rebate if sold with integrated sensors as of July 1:

Retrofit kits, retrofit kits with integrated sensors, and all non-integrated sensors (ceiling, wall, switch, fixture-mounted) must continue to be submitted through the Commercial Lighting rebate form.

Lastly, the rebate for ENERGY STAR connected/smart A-Style will increase from $4 to $6 per bulb, effective July 1. The Commercial Lighting Update Details two-page pdf documents the program changes more thoroughly.

Please let your account manager know if you have any questions.
