How to Apply for a Rebate
How to Apply for a Rebate
Applying for our Business Rebate Program is simple. If you’re a non-residential customer with facilities in PPL Electric Utilities’ service territories, you’re eligible to earn cash rebates toward energy efficiency improvements.
The current PPL Non-Residential programs (Phase III) will conclude on May 31, 2021. If you have a project that will complete on or before May 31, 2021, all project details and documentation will need to be submitted into the portal by June 15, 2021. We understand that this is a short timeline, but due to mandated program requirements, all projects must be closed out quickly. If the project information and documentation is not submitted into the portal by June 15, your project will no longer be eligible and will forfeit the incentives. If your project timeline has changed, and the project will complete after May 31, 2021, please reach out to your account manager and provide updated project details. If your project completion date moves into June, or later, your project will fall into the new program schedule and incentives will not be forfeited. The PPL Program Team appreciates your assistance as we close out one program so another 5 year program can begin.
Effective January 1, 2020, pre-approval is required for all projects. Pre-approval means that a project application must be submitted in good order and receive a pre-approval letter before construction begins.
Just follow the steps below:
Submit a rebate application
After energy efficiency projects are identified, visit our online application portal to set up an account in order to submit applications for rebates.
Required documentation may include a W-9, current electric bill, product specifications, savings calculations (lighting and/or custom) and invoices (including equipment quantities, model numbers, material costs and shipping address).
Projects must be submitted online to reserve funds. Based on the application's timelines and scope, we will calculate preliminary rebates and energy savings. Once reviewed and approved, we will notify you in writing of your rebate.*
To streamline the process, feel free to use our application checklist:
- Copy of current PPL electric bill.
- Dated, itemized invoices, including equipment quantities, model numbers, material costs and shipping address to verify equipment applying for rebates.
- Manufacturers’ specification sheets for each qualifying equipment type to verify the equipment meets the program efficiency levels.
- Rebate calculator(s), as needed for equipment and systems affected,
- Completed, signed W-9 with tax identification of rebate recipient(s).
* Rebates are not reserved without a complete application, including all support materials.
Pre- on-site verification
If we didn’t assist in the initial assessment, our program team may need to verify the facility for pre-approval purposes. Contact us to determine if that’s the case.
The contractor will then move forward with your chosen installations and upgrades. Please have notify us immediately of any changes to the project scope, equipment selection or timeline.
Submit all required documentation
Upon completion of project, you’ll need to submit all required supporting documentation and signed installation verification letter. What’s required will be listed on your rebate application status online. This completes your application for final review.
Receive your rebate check
Once your final application has been approved, a rebate check will be sent to the contact specified in the application. The rebates are issued approximately 4 to 6 weeks after project approval. Within a few weeks of receiving your rebate check, we will reach out with a customer satisfaction survey. We hope that you take the time to respond favorably and provide feedback on how PPL's Business Energy Efficiency Program helped your business.
We can help you and your consultant/contractor determine eligibility and guide you through the rebate process. For help finding a contractor, use our contractor database.
