LCCC Lighting Upgrade
Luzerne County Community College (LCCC) replaced more than 7,000 lighting fixtures and lamps with LED lights within seventeen buildings, walkways and parking lots. This lighting upgrade is expected to reduce annual electricity use by 936,000 kWh.

UGI Rebate: $100,000 | Annual Savings: $60,000
Lighting Upgrade
Misericordia University installed 366 high-efficiency lamps in its Mary Kintz Bevevino Library. High-efficiency lighting was also installed in the new Trocaire Building. This upgrade is expected to save them nearly 150,000 kWh of annual electricity use.

Dallas Auto Parts
Lighting Upgrade
Paul McCue, Jr. worked with his contractor to replace his old fluorescent lighting with 39 high efficiency LED fixtures at his 4,000 squarefoot retail space. These upgrades not only reduce his energy usage, saving him hundreds annually, but also provide a much brighter and cleaner appearance to his store.

UGI Rebate: $500 | Annual Savings: $500

How to Get Started:

1. Speak with an Energy Advisor

If you don’t already have a project in mind, the first step is to have one of our energy advisors help you identify and prioritize energy saving opportunities. You can reach us at 262-999-2613 or UGIcustom@FranklinEnergy.com.

UGI Electric is also pleased to partner with local Trade Allies to promote energy efficiency services to our business customers. Trade Allies help raise awareness of our energy efficiency programs and inform customers about the opportunities and incentives available.

2. Submit Pre-Approval Application Package

Submit a complete pre-approval application package to the Program Team for review and approval.

All custom projects require pre-approval before you purchase and install equipment. We will verify project eligibility and estimated energy savings and calculate to determine the potential incentive. View all pre-approval package requirements on application.

If you are submitting a lighting project, you also need to submit the PA 2021 TRM Appendix C Worksheet.

If you are submitting a motor & VFD project, you will also need to submit the PA 2021 TRM Appendix D Worksheet.

3. Perform Pre-Installation Visit and Complete Project

We will perform a pre-installation site visit to verify the existing equipment and operating conditions. Once pre-approval is granted, complete your project as proposed.

4. Submit Final Approval Application Package

After completion, notify the Program Team and submit a final application package for final review and to schedule a post-installation site visit. Final application package includes:

  • Completed and signed final application
  • Itemized project invoice(s) with labor and material breakdown
  • Final Worksheets, if changes required
  • Final equipment specifications (cut sheets), if changes required

Program participants must submit a completed application within 180 days of the measure’s installation date. Once this is complete, you will receive your incentive check and begin saving energy.
