Incentives for Investing in Energy Efficiency first

We offer incentives on a wide variety of energy efficiency projects. These incentives can help your business reduce payback time and offset the cost of energy efficiency upgrades.

Incentive amounts are calculated based on annual savings and contingent upon the final review of project details.


Pre-approval is required for incentives for all Combined Heat & Power, Solar, and Direct Discount projects prior to beginning construction.

Pre-approval of the project continues to be recommended and encouraged to accurately calculate savings and incentives. However, effective April 1, 2024, pre-approval may be waived by PPL Electric on custom projects when project savings can still be accurately captured without pre-approval.


*Standard prescriptive application required. HVAC tune-up applications must include before and after cleaning photos, and name plate photo in place of specification sheets. To be eligible, facility must not have an active maintenance contract and received a tune-up in the past 3 years.
