How to Apply for an Incentive
Applying for our Business Incentive Program is simple. If you’re a non-residential customer with facilities in PPL Electric Utilities’ service territories, you’re eligible to earn cash incentives toward energy efficiency improvements.
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:
Throughout the evolving coronavirus pandemic, our first job remains to safely and reliably deliver electricity to our communities, and to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers. As a precaution, we are limiting physical interactions between our employees and our customers and are conducting virtual pre- and post-site verifications on an as-needed basis. If you have a question, please reach to your program team, or call 1-866-432-5501.
1. Submit an incentive application
After energy efficiency projects are identified, visit our online application portal to set up an account in order to submit applications for incentives.
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 incentives and energy savings. Once reviewed and approved, we will notify you in writing of your incentive.
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 incentives.
• Manufacturers’ specification sheets for each qualifying equipment type to verify the equipment meets the program efficiency levels.
• Incentive calculator(s), as needed for equipment and systems affected.
• Completed, signed W-9 with tax identification of incentive recipient(s).
*Incentives are not reserved without a complete application, including all support materials.
2. 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.
4. 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 incentive application status online. This completes your application for final review.
5. Receive your incentive check
Once your final application has been approved, an incentive check will be sent to the contact specified in the application. The incentives are issued approximately 4 to 6 weeks after project approval. Within a few weeks of receiving your incentive 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.
