Update: New Measure Effective April 1, 2016

DP&L has added a new rebate measure to account for LED lamp-only replacement. Previously, lamp replacement fell under the LED Lighting replacing HID or Fluorescent category and was paid based on the wattage of the existing fixture. Here's what you need to know:

  • The new measure is in the Re-lamping category.
  • This measure should be used if you're replacing T-8 or T-12 bulbs with LEDs, but not making a change to an integrated fixture.
  • T-LEDs will be rebated on a $1 per-foot basis.
  • T-LEDs must be certified by DLC, Lighting Facts, Lighting Design Lab or ENERGY STAR.
  • This measure is effective April 1, 2016.
  • LED integrated fixtures will continue to be rebated according to the current schedule below.

To qualify for previous incentives, purchase orders and applications must have been submitted before April 1, 2016
