In fact, some types of lights can even be completely free after the rebates are applied. But only if you find the right products and correctly file your application. 

SDG&E LED Rebates for Businesses

Getting rebates for your new led lights can be daunting (just take a look at the program information), but it doesn't have to be. Here's a quick summary of some of the rebates offered by SDG&E (Note: this is as of this writing, and could be changed in the future).

As you can see from the table, many of the LEDs would actually be paid for completely by the the SDG&E rebates. 

How to Get The Rebates

While you can of course purchase lights and file and for the rebates yourself, the easiest and best way is to go with a company like Nularis LED Lighting. Nularis will send you the products without charging you, then take care of the paperwork and wait to be reimbursed via the rebates from SDG&E. This way you get high quality lights, without having to pay up first, or dealing with all of the paperwork. The best part is that Nularis won't charge you anything additional to deal with the paperwork.

How Do LED Rebates for Businesses Work?

You may have heard about LED rebates from utility companies,  but did you know that these rebates can actually make LED lighting for your business free? Learn everything you need to know about LED rebates from your electric company, and how they can pay for your LED lighting.

What is an LED rebate?

LED rebates are provided by electric companies, or sometimes state and local governments, to help businesses and households purchase energy saving LED lights at steeply discounted prices. Sometimes they can even make the LEDs free!

How do LED rebates work?

The program details can vary widely, but in most cases utility companies or state agencies have set aside money to help their customers purchase energy saving equipment, such as LED lights. You can purchase LED lights and then apply for these rebates, or use the services of a company such as Nularis LED lighting, which will give you your new lights and then apply for the rebates for you. Using Nularis to apply for your lights saves you time, and means you won't have to front the money for the lights and then wait to be reimbursed by the electric company.

Why Do Utilities Offer LED rebates?

Surprisingly, electric companies actually make more money when you use less electricity. There's a couple of reasons for this. In some states, like California, the state will only allow the utility company to raise rates if they reduce electricity production by a certain percentage. Conserving electricity usage also allows utilities to serve a growing population without having to build new power plants. 

How do I get a LED rebate for my business?

You can contact your local utility company to see if they have any lighting rebate or incentive programs. Or go to and enter your zip code and business information, and we'll let you know if your business qualifies!
