Earn incentives on energy-efficient lighting

Lighting can amount to over 40 percent of your business's energy usage, so switching to energy-efficient lighting can yield long-term savings. No matter your business's size, PSE's Business Lighting Incentive Program has flexible options to help you affordably upgrade your lighting plan.

For smaller-scale lighting upgrades, see if PSE's Lighting To Go instant discounts can also help.

The total value of your business lighting incentive depends on the size and scope of your project.
