Commercial Lighting Rebate Program

Commercial Lighting Rebate

We understand that commercial lighting can be a significant expense for businesses, but it is also essential for providing a safe and productive working environment. That's why we've created a lighting retrofit rebate program to help offset the costs of upgrading your lighting system to more energy-efficient options.

BPUB provides commercial customers with energy-efficiency rebates for purchasing and installing qualifying lighting equipment for new facilities, expansions, and significant renovations to existing facilities.

Our program is designed to provide rebates for commercial electric customers who switch to energy-efficient lighting. Upgrading to LED lighting or other high-efficiency lighting options can reduce energy consumption and save money on your electric bill. Not only that, but you'll also be doing your part to help the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.

Contact BPUB at 956-983-6282 to schedule a pre-inspection appointment before beginning the project and to request additional rebate documents.

Benefits of switching to high-efficiency lighting

Lower energy costs: High-efficiency lightings, such as LED bulbs and fixtures, use significantly less energy than traditional lighting options. Businesses can save significant money on their energy bills each year by switching.

Longer lifespan: High-efficiency lighting options typically have a longer lifespan than traditional lighting, which means businesses can save money on replacement costs over time.

Improved lighting quality: High-efficiency lighting options provide better quality lighting than traditional options, leading to a more comfortable and productive working environment for employees. This can also help improve customer experience in retail and hospitality settings.

Reduced environmental impact: By reducing energy consumption, businesses that switch to high-efficiency lighting can reduce their carbon footprint and help protect the environment. This can also be a valuable marketing tool for businesses that want to show their commitment to sustainability and attract environmentally-conscious customers.

Program Guidelines
  • The facility must be located in the BPUB electric service area and be a customer of BPUB electric services.
  • Incentives for retrofit projects are based on the difference in kW between existing and newly-installed lights and are calculated individually for each project. Base lighting use is calculated by determining the number and type of lights before the change-out.
  • Retrofit projects require documentation that details the quantity and type of existing lights, the proposed quantity and type of lights to be installed, kW and kWh savings, estimated cost savings and the proposed cost of the retrofit work.
  • The incentive amount is $200 per kW, reduced.
  • Customers must submit the BPUB Lighting Retrofit Worksheet, a signed and completed application, a detailed invoice that itemizes the quantity and costs of all equipment to be installed, including labor and a signed copy of the Terms & Conditions Mail to Brownsville Public Utilities Board, Attn: Mirta Vasquez at P.O. Box 3270, Brownsville, Texas, 78521 or e-mail to [email protected]
