Burbank Water and Power - LEED Certification Incentive Program

July 19, 2023


Designing and building high-performance buildings that are also sustainable is good business and better for the environment. To help offset the cost of constructing environmentally friendly buildings, the city of Burbank created two ordinances and Burbank Water and Power created a rebate program. Rebates vary depending on the level of certification a building receives, ranging from $15,000-$30,000.
