ComEd - Business Instant Lighting Discounts Program

May 26, 2022


Business Instant Lighting Discounts (BILD) is a high efficiency bulb/lamp/equipment program that offers financial incentives on qualified products purchased through participating electrical distributors. Incentives are delivered as a price reduction at the time of purchase with no application or pre-approval required.

Incentives are available on a variety of reduced wattage lamps which can be installed as a direct replacement for standard lamps without having to rewire the fixture. Eligible lamps include reduced wattage T8 and T5 linear fluorescents, screw-in LED lamps and LED trim kits, and LED exit sign products. All incentives are provided through participating electrical distributors. A full list of participating distributors is located on the program website listed above.
