The City of Richland (COR) provides rebates to encourage commercial utility customers to increase the energy efficiency of facilities by replacing existing lighting systems with more efficient equipment. The rebate amount varies widely depending on the type of lighting being installed and the lighting type being replaced. Incentives cannot exceed 70% of the total project cost, and projects must achieve at least a 30% wattage reduction and carry a simple payback of at least one year to qualify. These rebates will be available until September 30, 2012, or until COR funds expire, whichever comes first. City of Richland Energy Services will mail the rebate to the customer or contractor within 60 days. Inspection requirements are listed on the program web site. Contact the City of Richland for more information on how to participate in this program.
