Pole Mounted LED Lighting

GCEA and Tri-State Generation and Transmission offer an exterior pole mounted LED lighting rebate program for new, retrofit, or non-maintenance replacement of permanent installations that are purchased by the member. The program is for pole-mounted lighting only; it does not apply to lighting directly attached to buildings, parking garages, or off-street pedestrian lighting, bollards, or lamps of less than 2,100 lumen output. Rebates are calculated based on the lower of the sum of the per-fixture values from the table below or 1/4 of the material cost for each head or retrofit kit, with a maximum rebate of $20,000 per project and member account per calendar year.

The following table refers to incentives for the Retrofit Commercial LED and T-12 Retrofit Commercial LED rebate programs:
