Make the switch to LED lights.

Lightbulb moment: Upgrade your interior lighting to lower your energy costs. LED lights use way less energy than incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. Your selected PPN members will estimate your project’s potential energy savings with the Customized Lighting Tool, which calculates variables like equipment and operating schedules—so you can make informed decisions.

Sustainability is our business. It’s why we help you with your business.

We offer incentives to help make your business’s energy goals more attainable—because when your business takes a step toward greater sustainability, the rest of the Valley does too.

Lighting incentive offering

On top of using more energy, incandescent and fluorescent lights produce large amounts of heat. Lighting is typically the largest source of waste heat, often called “heat gain,” inside buildings. Newer LED lighting options aren’t just cooler—they’re smarter too. Technologies like Occupancy Sensors conserve energy by automatically turning lights on and off when no one’s in the room. 

There’s no time like right now.
