Dayton Power and Light (DP&L) today awarded its first business rebate for energy efficiency upgrades to a Tipp City, Ohio company.
Process Equipment Company (PECo) was awarded a $3,960 rebate for upgrading to energy-efficient lighting. The new equipment will continue to save PECo $5,500 a year in energy costs.
DP&L offers business and government customers two programs for energy efficiency rebates on over 100 different energy-efficient products. Both programs allow DP&L’s business customers to save on efficiency projects, which will help them use less energy.
Rapid Rebates is a program for common efficiency upgrades such as lighting, heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), motors, drives and compressed air, as well as additional technologies. Customized Rebates are available for specialized equipment which falls outside of the Rapid Rebates program.
“We spent significant time listening to our customers as well as a number of contractors and distributors in the area,” said Scott Kelly, senior vice president of Service Operations. “And so far, the initial response to the rebate programs has been very positive.”
After only seven weeks, DP&L has received 75 applications for rebates totaling in excess of $500,000.
A complete list of rebates is available to businesses at www.dpandl.com/bizrebates. To apply, there is an online, step-by-step process that customers can follow.
The business and government programs help DP&L customers save money, are environmentally smart and are important in helping the company meet future energy needs. One of Ohio’s energy efficiency targets is to reduce electricity consumption by 22 percent by the end of 2025.
