Traditional Lighting Rebates Disappearing
Traditional lighting technologies like pulse start metal halide, T5HO and induction used to receive hefty rebates. At the time, these solutions offered significant energy savings to customers and their rebates could range from $30 to $150 per fixture. Rebate programs have started to move away from these traditional technologies as LEDs prove more energy efficient. While the dollar amounts of the rebates for these products have stayed relatively consistent, the number of available rebate programs has dropped by 30% in the last year alone. Some programs have even gone as far as removing all lighting products except for LEDs.
Although the number of rebates for traditional lighting products is declining, in some cases, rebates for these can still be relatively high compared to cost, so it's important to do your research when deciding what product best meets your needs. The average rebate for a T5HO highbay fixture is $68 and there are more than 1,000 rebates available for it. For cost conscious customers, it may still be the most economical solution.
