The Indiana Power and Light Business (IPL) Energy Incentives Program assists commercial and industrial customers with reducing energy consumption through three common types of equipment: lighting, motors and pumps (for HVAC and Processing Equipment). The program also offers Custom Incentives to provide incentives for energy efficiency projects involving other technologies. Participants interested in the Custom program should define the project and submit an application early, as they must be pre-screened and pre-approved while the targeted incentives do not unless they exceed $20,000 in rebates. Once an application gains approval, an incentive is reserved until project completion. Contact IPL for more information on this offering.
