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:
|Minimum Fixture Lumens to Receive the Incentive||LED Lighting Incentive per Fixture (if smaller than 1/4 cost of head)||Nominal Watts of Actual or Equivalent Metal Halide or HID Lamps (for general reference only!)|
|13,000||$200||320 to 400|
|5,000||$80||150 to 175|
|2,100||$44||70 to 75|
The following table refers to incentives for New Construction LED Lighting:
|Minimum Fixture Lumens to Receive the Incentive||LED Lighting Incentive per Fixture (if smaller than ¼ cost of head)||Nominal Watts of Actual or Equivalent Metal Halide or HID Lamps (for general reference only!)|
|13,000||$100||320 to 400|
|5,000||$40||150 to 175|
|2,100||$22||70 to 75|
- Incentive only applies to the permanent installation of a new LED head that is purchased by the member.
- HID screw-in replacement lamps or existing head retrofit kits do not qualify as Pole Mounted Lighting.
