Duquesne Light provides rebates on energy-saving equipment to commercial and industrial customers in the eligible service territory. There are 2 types of rebate programs available to all C&I customers. One is the rebate catalog listing specific equipment and its rebate amount. After purchasing and installing the equipment, the customer submits the necessary paperwork, and the rebate is paid to the customer by check. The second program is the customized rebate program where C&I customers are encouraged to undertake energy efficiency projects customized to facilities that include items not found in the rebate catalog. Rebates for the projects will be based on kWh's saved in a year. Customers will provide details of the planned installations and removals, hours of operation, etc. Customers will be informed of the rebate amount before they start the project. Rebate checks for customized projects will be issued after installation is complete. Duquesne Light has partnered with conservation service providers to work with specific segments of customers. These conservation service providers can assist customers with energy audits, project identification, cost and savings calculations, equipment specification, project management and rebate paperwork. See program web site listed above for more information.
