Rebate Administration

Bay Lighting is an authorized lighting distributor with BGE, Pepco, and DCSEU. We offer two options in lighting rebates, instant and prescriptive, and we recommend products that qualify for rebates whenever possible. Typically, these products are DLC listed or Energy Star compliant. With either scenario, we will manage all administrative paperwork and pass these rebates along to you, in a timely manner, with no out of pocket expense.

  • Prescriptive Rebates – Prescriptive rebates are not designed to be paid out instantly. Qualifications are based on proper submission of the energy efficient fixture. These rebates can take a longer time for approval, but with our rebate administrative process, there’s no waiting for our customers.
  • Instant – Instant rebates are predetermined by each utility company. Below is a list of instant rebate discounts on qualifying energy-efficient lighting offered by each of our utility companies. Simply subtract the discount amount from your lamp price to determine your per product cost. As you can see, savings can add up quickly.

Instant Rebate Case Study

Bay Lighting has extensive experience in submitting and helping our customers earn rebates and financial incentives for lighting projects and often times, rebates pay for the cost of the project in less than a year. As an example, Bay Lighting saved one customer over 80% using instant rebates to purchase LED lighting for their parking garage. The project would have normally cost $9,858 but with rebates only cost the customer $1,861. Bay Lighting administered the rebates at no up front cost to our customer and with no wait time on product shipment. This could be you… it’s that easy!


Take the guesswork out of qualifying for energy rebates. Let us help you apply and receive all available incentives.

In April, the Department of Energy finalized two rules requiring manufactures to sell energy-efficient lightbulbs. This means older, inefficient lightbulbs that don’t meet the new standards can no longer be manufactured and sold. The primary purposes for these rules are to drive down electricity use, save consumers money, and decrease greenhouse gas emissions.

It’s estimated that schools spend billions of dollars annually on energy, and it’s often the second-highest operating expenditure (following personnel costs). Each year, these expenses continue to increase while budgets often decrease, leading educators to look for ways to save money throughout the year. One way is by making some lighting updates that are more energy efficient, therefore saving money on energy bills. LED uses up to 75% less energy than conventional lighting systems, which keeps dollars in your budget for other important things.
