Express Efficiency Program
For Small Commercial and Industrial Customers (with less than 300kW in billing demand), Duquesne Light is providing rebates on a wide range of energy-saving devices that a commercial or industrial customer might use, such as linear LED tubes, fixtures, variable frequency drives, and lighting controls. After purchasing and installing any of the equipment on the list, customers must complete a rebate application form and send it to the address provided on the form. The rebate is paid by check.
Energy Efficiency Rebates are available for equipment upgrades and improvements including lighting and cooling. Rebates are paid based on the quantity, size, and efficiency of the equipment. They are also provided for qualified equipment commonly installed in a retrofit or equipment replacement situation.
Custom incentives are available to customers for less common or more complex energy saving measures installed in qualified retrofit and equipment replacement projects. Custom measure incentives are paid based on kWh savings.
Duquesne Light reserves the right to deny a rebate due to depletion of Watt Choices program funds.
Duquesne Light may require an inspection before issuing the rebate check. The customer must agree, if requested, to grant a Duquesne Light representative site access to verify the installation of the equipment. If the customer refuses to provide access, Duquesne Light has no obligation to provide the customer with a rebate.
If the Project is selected for evaluation, measurement and verification, as a condition of accepting the incentive, Customer agrees to provide the following:
Access by Verification Personnel to Customer premises to inspect and if necessary measure power requirements, post-installation of the Project described above.
Available equipment performance data the Customer may have already been collecting, such as building management system trend data. Providing this data may serve to minimize Customer’s inconvenience of required equipment metering.
Access by Verification Personnel to install meters or loggers on Project equipment or electric distribution panels, and to then come back to collect those meters or loggers.
Access to facility staff familiar with the Project that can direct Verification Personnel to Project installation location.
Duquesne Light does not endorse any specific manufacturers, dealers, or contractors.
Duquesne Light provides no warranty for the installed equipment and/or product. By participating in this program, the customer agrees that Duquesne Light has no liability for the quality, safety, and installation of the equipment/product.
The program opened June 1, 2016.
The program is scheduled to close on May 31, 2021.
