Utility rebates can be complex and that is why Emunah is here to help you with the process.
Utility rebates help to lower the initial acquisition cost of the energy saving measures, which in turn shortens the payback period on investment. By implementing lighting measures that reduce the energy used in a given space, you are saving money on your electricity bill.
Utilities set annual energy savings goals that they strive to meet. End user incentives are an energy saving alternative to the much greater capital expense of expanding power plant capacity and infrastructure maintenance. It is often cheaper to pay for rebates than to build a new power plant.
Emunah is a Trade Partner for PPL, Pepco, Peco, and Met-ed, each with their own rebate programs. Rebates are available for lamps, ballasts, fixtures and controls. Emunah supports the rebate programs with fluorescent as well as LED technology. Rebates are available for both applications.
There are currently two different kinds of rebates, Custom and Prescriptive.
Prescriptive Rebates provide a specific predetermined dollar amount for each fixture or lamp replaced, for example: save $16 / lamp.
Custom Rebates are based on the total energy savings of a specific project, for example, the amount of kWh saved from switching to one technology over another ($0.12 / kWh saved annually).
