Glenwood Electric offers 20 percent bonus rebates
Glenwood Springs Electric is offering two special year-end deals for commercial customers: a bonus 20 percent rebate for electrical energy efficiency upgrades and a 25 percent rebate for LED holiday lights.
The 20 percent rebate bonus applies to electrical energy saving upgrades done between Oct. 1 and Dec. 15.
For commercial customers, energy efficiency is a good investment, and rebates help shorten the payback on your investment, said Shelley Kaup, an energy consultant for CLEER.
CLEER manages the Glenwood Springs Electric Sustainability Program, which helps commercial and residential customers reduce their electric usage.
“Energy upgrades offer other financial benefits by reducing utility bills, cutting down on maintenance, and can qualify as a deductible business expense. Be sure to consult your accountant,” Kaup said.
“Energy efficiency upgrades also improve the comfort, visibility and performance of your business space, and give your business a cleaner environmental footprint,” she added.
CLEER also provides a free building walk-through to identify electric energy savings potential, and free energy coaching to evaluate contractor bids and maximize all available rebates.
If your business has old T12, incandescent or high-bay lighting, metal halide or high-pressure sodium parking lot lighting, refrigeration equipment with old motors, old motor controls or heat tape with no timers, Kaup said now is the time to upgrade and start saving energy.
Glenwood Springs Electric’s 2015 rebate for such upgrades is 25 percent of project costs up to $5,000 per business. The 20 percent bonus can increase your rebate by up to $1,000 more.
This rebate can be complemented by an additional 25 percent rebate up to $2,500 from CORE, for a total rebate of up to 50 percent of project costs.
Projects must be completed with invoices dated between Oct. 1 and Dec. 15, 2015.
A separate offer covers 25 percent of the cost of swapping out functional incandescent holiday light strings for LED strings, up to $10 per string.
LED strings use 75 to 80 percent less energy than old incandescent strings, and deliver a brilliant sparkle that old incandescent bulbs just can’t match.
The holiday light string rebate is a trade-in deal. Buy your new LED light strings, save the receipt and call CLEER to trade in your old strings.
