Lighting often accounts for 40 to 70 percent of building energy use. Business owners want to reduce energy costs by using more efficient lighting options, but efficient replacement options can cost considerably more than inefficient ones, and looking for utility rebates can be time consuming. It can also be difficult to determine what products are eligible. Puget Sound Energy’s Commercial CFL Instant Rebate Program can help commercial customers save time and money.
