In 2017 we made a large purchase of LEDs for one of our High Schools and received a rebate by showing the energy savings. We are looking to change a different High School to LEDs, but the rules have changed. The purchased products must be Energy star certified or DLC certified. Without the rebate we cannot afford to make the purchase.
Any chance that ETC fixtures will be certified?
Unfortunately, DLC is for commercial lighting only and requires high efficacies that are not attainable by additive color mixing fixtures like Source Four LED or ColorSource.
Similarly, Energy Star is limited to residential type products and will not allow for the types of fixtures we make.
Our experience is that rebates may be available for our products but usually require a custom rebate program from your utility provider. We have assembled a packet to assist with this:
I hope this helps.
