Dayton Power and Light's (DP&L) non-residential electricity customers are eligible for energy efficient technology rebates. Rebates are available for energy efficiency measures added to an existing system when a customer retires usable electric-powered equipment and replaces it with a more efficient model. Customers must demonstrate permanency or sustainability of savings over the payback period. Equipment must exceed minimum federal and state mandated efficiency standards. Rebates will be paid within 30 days of an inspection of the system. Custom rebates are available to non-residential distribution customers and must meet a payback period between one and seven years. See the program web site for more information on eligibility and equipment requirements.
