Kentucky Power - Commercial Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

November 20, 2015


Kentucky Power provides a variety of prescriptive incentives to commercial customers for lighting upgrades, HVAC retrofits, refrigeration measures and custom upgrades which conserve energy. Additionally, new construction projects and small commercial customers are eligible to receive a variety of incentives. All projects must meet the program equipment requirements and be pre-approved prior to the purchase and installation of equipment. Customers may then implement the energy saving project and can reserve rebate funds for up to 180 days. Rebates are only provided for new improvements to facilities, resulting in a permanent reduction in electrical energy usage. All equipment must meet program specifications listed on the application form. Final applications, along with copies of dated invoices and product specification sheets, must be submitted within 60 days of project completion. All documentation must be received by December 15 of the program year. Contact Kentucky Power for more information on this program.
