Lighting Retrofit Incentives for 2023


By Joshua Baker

Good news for businesses thinking of doing a lighting retrofit project in 2023. Energy Trust of Oregon has announced changes to their commercial lighting incentives that can improve the financial return for many types of commercial and industrial lighting projects. Some of the highlights:

  • Incentives have increased for higher-wattage interior LED fixtures. This will primarily be applicable to commercial and industrial buildings with higher ceilings, such as warehouses, manufacturing, and some retail locations.
  • Incentives for fixtures with individual sensors and with advanced lighting controls have also increased. This will be beneficial for the applications mentioned above, but also for office buildings and parking garages.
  • The incentives mentioned above also apply to exterior fixtures for parking lots, walkways, etc.

Contact the LAMP Program to learn more about how these changes can improve ROI and payback on your lighting projects.

Some lamps, such as LED replacements for fluorescent tubes, don’t qualify for the Business Lighting Program, but can still get incentives through the Instant Discounts for Business Lighting program. These incentives are applied immediately when you purchase qualifying LED lamps and fixtures from a participating distributor and don’t require any additional paperwork. The discounts apply whether you have the lighting installed by a contractor, or by in-house personnel. Fortunately for LAMP participants, our distribution partner, ESCO Supplies, Inc., is participating in this program and can offer instant discounts for customers with sites in the Energy Trust service territory.

LED lighting and controls can enhance the appearance and safety of your commercial property. Substantial energy and maintenance savings, combined with Energy Trust incentives, can result in projects with an excellent return on investment.
