Rebates may be available for your LED purchases.


There is no doubt LEDs are the way of the future. By upgrading lighting in their buildings, customers save money, reduce energy use and replace fewer bulbs over time. And as customers increasingly demand improved energy efficiency and reduced energy costs, the more LED bulbs are considered for new building projects and retrofits.

For a time, many shied away from LED because, despite the benefits, the bulbs were expensive. That should no longer hold customers back, however. Not only have costs come down, there are a number of rebates available for LED installations

To calculate your return on investment for an LED project, read our blog on LED ROI tools and calculations. 

Qualified customers of Xcel Energy in Minnesota can benefit from rebates offered by the service provider. Xcel’s Business LED Instant Rebate offers incentives for installing screw-in Energy Star LEDs.

According to Xcel, screw-in Energy Star LEDs have a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduce energy use by up to 80%
  • Save up to $135 over each bulb’s life span
  • Last up to 25 times longer (saving replacement and maintenance costs)
  • Emit almost no heat, reducing cooling costs that add up throughout facilities
  • Come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit virtually any type of fixture. Customers can easily substitute LED directional lamps wherever halogen spot and track lighting is used, such as in retail settings, restaurants, hotels, museums, galleries and more
