Customized rebates cover other technologies not found on the standard list. The amounts of custom rebates are determined by actual energy savings during the first year, which is calculated by evaluating your business’ current lighting, new lighting and operating hours. Some of the most common types of customized projects include exterior lighting, high bay and lighting controls.
