Commercial Lighting New Construction Rebate Program
This program applies to lighting systems in commercial, industrial, and
agricultural new construction facilities. For instance, all commercial and
industrial facilities, plus wineries, potato storage sheds, pump houses, office
space, and other on-farm facilities.
The process is fairly simple but certain requirements do
have to be met. In a nutshell, the most important points are as follows:
The new construction must be served by Flathead Electric Cooperative.
You or your lighting supplier must fill out the Commercial Lighting
Rebate Application Form and Agreement. Your rebate must
be approved by Flathead Electric Cooperative prior to the measures being
The Lighting installation must be new construction.
An overall lighting wattage reduction of 20% from code allowance must be
achieved for the project to qualify for a rebate. This must be demonstrated
through the use of a Com Check worksheet for the proposed project.
Flathead Electric Cooperative will pay the lesser of 70% of the
incremental project cost or the calculated rebate based upon the kilowatt
hour reduction. The incremental project cost is the increase in cost due to
more efficient lighting compared to that required by code.
