Rebates

Santee Cooper offers rebates through our Commercial Prescriptive Lighting Program for qualifying lighting improvements to your business, which include Certified Retrofit Lighting, Non-Certified Retrofit Lighting, Lighting Controls and Underwater LED Lighting.


Certified Retrofit Lighting

Certified Retrofit Lighting

Light Up Savings

The most efficient business lighting is the ENERGY STAR® or DesignLights Consortium certified retrofit lighting. These LEDs have been tested and approved as high-quality LEDs, and are more energy efficient than previous light bulb designs. These changes normally have a short payback period. When you change out your old lightbulbs for LEDs, you could receive a $.20/reduced watt rebate from Santee Cooper

Non-Certified Retrofit Lighting

Non-Certified Retrofit Lighting

Show Your Business in a Better Light

Although non-certified retrofit lighting has not been verified by a third party like ENERGY STAR® or DesignLights Consortium, they are more efficient than incandescent lights and CFLs. When you change out your old lightbulbs for these LEDs, you could receive a $.10/reduced watt rebate from Santee Cooper.
