Commercial Lighting Terms & Conditions


  1. Power Forward commercial lighting incentives are provided by Heartland Consumers Power District (Heartland) and their participating electric utility customers. Commercial and industrial customers of participating utilities are eligible to apply for incentives. For a list of participating utilities, visit or contact your local utility to verify participation.
  2. Only existing lighting systems qualify for the incentives. New construction or the addition of more light fixtures in a facility does not qualify. The number of new lighting fixtures will equal the number of fixtures being replaced. If the quantity of new or existing fixtures is not equal, the lesser quantity will be eligible for incentives.
  3. Eligible equipment must be connected to an electric service billed under a commercial or industrial rate class by the participating utility. Only new products will be eligible for incentives and must replace old equipment.
  4. This program is applicable to lighting upgrades as outlined in the application. Rebates for other lighting upgrades may be granted at the discretion of Heartland. Lighting upgrades other than those outlined in this application must be pre-approved by Heartland staff before installation in order to be eligible for incentives.
