      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.

    Rebates | Eligibility | Questions | Additional Information / Terms and Conditions


    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.


    • You must be a commercial or industrial Duquesne Light customer.
    • The equipment or energy savings measure you install must meet all the requirements provided in the rebate catalog and on this web site.
    • Watt Choices Program funds must be available at the time the properly completed rebate application is received.
    • The equipment must have been installed after June 1, 2016.
    • The equipment must be installed at facilities served by Duquesne Light.
    • Customers may not apply for rebates for the same product, equipment or service from more than one utility.
