How does it work?

1. Start by selecting a contractor from the qualified contractor list and contact them to schedule a free lighting evaluation.

2. Your contractor will evaluate current lighting and/or refrigeration, identify improvement opportunities and provide a proposal with upgrade recommendations, project costs, paybacks and rebate information.

3. Consider recommended projects, paybacks and rebates from Alliant Energy.

4. Schedule approved lighting and/or refrigeration projects with your contractor.

5. Alliant Energy rebates pay up to 70% of your project cost (you earn $0.14 per kWh saved) directly to your contractor. You simply pay the balance. Plus, you’ll enjoy long-term savings on energy costs.
