Get a big rebate on new lights!
We offer a 70% rebate of the cost of new, energy efficient lights. This is for all non-residential customers including businesses, offices, retail stores, manufacturing facilities, local governments, non-profits, private and public institutions, and healthcare facilities.

The program also offers an energy assessment if needed. We have given rebates to many commercial and industrial customers in the Mid-Hudson Valley ranging from $1,000 to $35,000. The payback period is usually less than 18 months.

Eligible measures include indoor and outdoor lighting, and other customer measures will be handled on a case-by-case basis. The rebate form has the breakdown of rebates for each type of lighting equipment.

Alliance Energy Solutions
is the Advanced Trade Ally for this program. To schedule a free energy audit or to install new lights, please call Michael Mastriano or Katie Savino at (203) 264-1300. Alliance also offers financing for energy efficiency upgrades.

Federal tax deductions for businesses
Businesses can take a tax deduction for new or renovated buildings by reducing the energy costs associated with three components: lighting systems; building envelope; and heating, cooling and water heating equipment. Buildings must meet the ASHRAE 90.1-2001 standard and be placed in service between Jan. 1, 2006 and Dec. 31, 2013 to be eligible. For details on this federal tax deduction, visit this Web site or download this flyer (PDF).
