Custom Rebate Amounts

Skip To Side Navigation

⚠️ In compliance with Ohio House Bill 6, DP&L's mandated energy efficiency programs are ending. Learn More ›

 

DP&L cannot exceed the approved incentive budget for Business Rebate Programs. In an effort to more thoroughly evaluate the remaining budget, DP&L is suspending payment of Business Rebates. Should DP&L be able to resume rebate payments, rebates will be fulfilled based on the time stamp of completed applications.  Questions should be directed to EnergyEfficiency@dplinc.com.

 

DP&L offered Custom Rebates to help Business and Government customers offset the cost associated with energy efficiency projects and technologies not included under our Rapid Rebates Program. Although we are no longer accepting new Custom Rebate applications, the information below provides a summary of the program and requirements for those customers who still have open rebate applications in our system.

 

Rebate Types and Amounts

  • Lighting: $0.05 per kWh saved + $50 per KW saved
  • HVAC: $0.10 per kWh saved + $100 per KW saved
  • Other: $0.08 per kWh saved + $100 per KW saved

Final incentive amounts will be calculated based on the final cost of project net outside funding received, provided such cost is reasonable in the judgment of DP&L, and will be limited to the lesser of 100% of the incremental cost or 50% of the total project cost, not including taxes, warranty fees, or maintenance fees.

Payback Period

Your payback period must be 7 years or less and is determined by this formula:

Payback Period = Total Incremental Cost / Estimated Annual Electric Savings

Incremental Equipment Costs consider the installed cost of the high efficiency equipment compared to the costs of any minimum federal- and state-mandated efficiency standards. If none exist, then industry accepted standard efficiency equipment should be used. If no standard equipment is applicable, the total equipment cost should be used. Estimated Annual Electric Savings consider electric savings at your current average customer rate.

Baseline Determination

The guidelines below determine the appropriate kWh and kW baseline.

  • New efficiency measure added to an existing system: New equipment being added to an existing system to increase system efficiency. The energy baseline is the performance of the existing system in its original, working condition.
  • Early retirement of equipment: Replacement of inefficient equipment that has not yet reached the end of its useful life with new, more modern equipment. The energy baseline is the performance of the existing system in its original, working condition.
  • Replacement of equipment at the end-of-useful life or replacement of failed equipment: The equipment must be replaced. The energy baseline is any minimum federal- and state-mandated efficiency standards that may exist. In the absence of these standards, generally accepted industry standards should be used.

Additional Details

  • Rebate applications must be submitted to DP&L before any equipment for the project is purchased.
  • For more information, view the program terms and conditions or contact us at EnergyEfficiency@dplinc.com.
  • Rebate values are subject to change and apply only to new, unused equipment. Rebate measures and values for the 2020 programs are for equipment and services purchased and installed on or after January 1, 2020.
  • Rebates are issued directly to the customer. Each project will only be eligible to receive a single DP&L rebate.
  • Funds are allotted on a calendar-year basis and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • A custom rebate will be limited to the lesser of 100% of the incremental cost or 50% of the total project cost, not including taxes, warranty fees, or maintenance fees. DP&L shall make the final determination regarding rebate amounts. Any individual account number will be limited in incentives in any calendar year to the greater of $250,000 or the amount equivalent to the dollars paid into DP&L's Energy Efficiency Rider for the individual account number during the preceding 12 months, with the exception of CHP projects.
  • DP&L reserves the right to deny any rebate.
  • All DP&L energy programs are subject to Public Utilities Commission of Ohio rules and regulations.
