With the looming obsolescence of T12 lighting, ComEd's Smart Ideas for Your Business®  is launching a full-scale initiative to encourage customers to upgrade to T8/T5 lighting.
 
ComEd is offering bonus incentives for T12-to-T8 retrofits between September 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012. Incentives for most T12-to-T8 retrofit measures will increase $2 per unit; incentives for lamp-only measures will increase $0.50 (see below for list). After March 31, 2012, incentives will be reduced. They will never be this high again!
 
A special application, with all the increased incentives highlighted, will be available on the ComEd web site.
 
The initiative includes more than an incentive increase. It will be backed by marketing and sales tools available only to Smart Ideas Trade Allies:
  • A 'Top Three Reasons to Upgrade Your T12 Fluorescent Lighting Now' flyer is available free to Trade Allies. Trade Allies may also order the flyer imprinted with their company logo and contact information, and there is a small cost for these.*
  • Coming soon: An interactive online T12 upgrade savings calculator on the ComEd web site will engage customers, show them the savings they can achieve, and refer them to the Trade Ally list.
  • The T12 phase-out will be a major topic at the Energy Efficiency Expo September 7.
  • In addition, Smart Ideas awareness advertising, banner ads and customer newsletters will reinforce the message.
Please note the following:
  • The increased incentives will apply to complete final applications submitted between September 1, 2011 and March 31, 2012.
  • Incentives will be reduced on April 1, 2012.
  • Applications can include just T12 upgrades or T12 upgrade plus some other lighting measure.
  • A pre-approval application is required for the delamping incentive.
  • The complete final application must be received by March 31 to qualify for higher incentive.
