Standard vs. Customized: What’s The Difference?


Standard (or prescriptive) incentives are a pre-determined rebate amount per unit. This includes products like LED linear tubes, screw-in bulbs, LED exit signs and more. See the Summary Sheet below for a full list.

Customized incentives cover other technologies not found on the standard list. The amounts of custom incentives 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.
