Georgia Power Lighting Rebate

By falyn_eaden

Georgia Power is now offering lighting rebates through their Commercial Energy Efficiency Program. This rebate was created to counteract the startup cost of improving a building’s energy efficiency. Up to 40% of your annual electricity cost can be caused by inefficient lighting.

Replacing inefficient equipment with LED lighting has already been proven to reduce your energy consumption up to 80%. With that being said, there are plenty of savings to be had. You can now reap the benefits of LED lighting and be reimbursed for the installation process from Georgia Power. Here’s how you can save.
