LED Tip 12: What You Need to Know about Rebates

Rebates can lower the cost of purchase if you are in the market for LED. Here is 5 tips you need to remember when it comes to LED and rebates.

1. Rebates are awarded by utility companies

Whether you are eligible for a rebate has everything to do with your utility company - the same company you buy power from. They set the rebate programs, the amount of the rebate, and how much they are prepared each year to hand out as a rebate. So its best to do the research (read tip 5 how you can easily find out)

2. Rebates apply to DesignLights Consortium Products

Most utility companies will only look at rebates on products that are qualified under the DLC Program. Look for the DLC Symbol on MyLEDLightingGuide's website to find out which products have been qualified. DLC Products are all warrantied for at least 5 years.

3. DLC has 2 programs: Standard and Premium

DesignLights Consortium sets the standard, and lights are submitted to be approved under one of those standards. Typically, Premium Qualified Lights are more efficient, and will use less energy - saving you more money.

4. DLC Premium Rebates are Typically Larger than Standard Rebates

This is an incentive for you to buy the most efficient product. It may cost a little more (not necessarily though), but you will save more money over the life of the product.
