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


DP&L offered New Construction Rebates to help Business and Government customers investing in energy-efficient technology when building new facilities. Although we are no longer accepting New Construction 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.



There are two unique new construction rebates, one for lighting and another that covers your entire building. Customers can take advantage of either method of saving, but not both.

Lighting Power Density (LPD) Reduction for Interior Lighting

The LPD reduction incentive encourages you to install lighting designs and equipment that provide quality lighting that uses less energy.

Whole Building Energy Performance Baseline Improvements

The whole building baseline improvement incentive rewards you for designing your buildings to be more efficient than a baseline building constructed to ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2010.
