Golden Valley Electric Association - Commercial Lighting Retrofit Rebate Program

February 09, 2016


Business $ense is a Golden Valley Electric Association (GVEA) program designed to increase the efficiency with which energy is used on GVEA's system. It provides rebates of up to $20,000 to existing facilities receiving the commercial rate who reduce their lighting loads through energy efficient lighting retrofit projects. Facilities on GVEA's commercial electric rate must submit an Energy Efficient Lighting Proposal for review. GVEA will then schedule a pre-project inspection. If the project is mutually beneficial and program monies are available, GVEA will offer a contract. When the project is complete, GVEA will perform a post-inspection and issue the rebate, provided the contract has been fulfilled.
