How were the measures eligible for rebates determined?
Duquesne Light evaluated measures in terms of energy and peak demand savings, operating life, price, etc.
Each measure was evaluated for cost-effectiveness, to be sure benefits exceeded costs. Because the Watt Choices program is designed to serve all Duquesne Light customers, including commercial and industrial, budget considerations
influenced the total number of measures that could be offered.
Is it likely other measures will be added?
Duquesne Light plans to conduct an annual review of the rebate program. As additional analysis of costs and savings
for particular measures is conducted, as new technologies and measures appear in the marketplace, we may add additional
measures to the eligibility list.
When might new measures be added?
While Duquesne Light plans to complete an annual review of existing and prospective measures, rebates may be added during the course of each year.
What if the rebate amount is greater than my purchase price?
Duquesne Light will issue rebates for any item “up to” the amount paid by the customer for an eligible item.
