Incentives for energy efficient commercial lighting equipment as well as commercial LED lighting equipment are available to businesses under the Efficiency Vermont Lighting and LED Lighting Incentive Programs. Eligible measures are listed on the program application. In addition, instant off rebates are available through Efficiency Vermont's SMARTLIGHT program.

If a customer has more than 10,000 square feet of space to renovate, or more than 100 items that could qualify for rebates, or the total rebate amount will be greater than $5000, the customer should contact Efficiency Vermont directly for pre-approval. Customers serviced by the Burlington Electric Department (BED) must seek pre-approval for all projects and must return the rebate form to BED directly. Applicants must comply with eligibility requirements, use only the eligible equipment, and follow all terms and conditions.
