The TDPUD’s Commercial Lighting Rebate Program provides for one-third of project costs (up to $10,000) for commercial lighting retrofits to either high-efficiency fluorescents, induction, and/or LED lighting. The codes and standards for commercial lighting do change and are moving toward the most cost-effective technologies. The Truckee Lighting Technology Center was designed to showcase lighting technologies that exceed the minimum requirements and have greater energy and cost savings potential.
