Service Line Protection Beginning January 2018

Heartland Auto Electric of Princeton completed a lighting retrofit at their facility by replacing 45 existing 400 Watt high-intensity discharge (HID) metal halide fixtures with 6 lamp 4 foot fluorescent super F32T8 fixtures.  Heartland also retrofitted all their existing T12 fixtures with T8s. To help them defray some of the costs for these efficient upgrades, Princeton Public Utilities provided Heartland with a lighting rebate of $6,489, which included a limited time bonus of $10 per fixture. Because of their efforts, Heartland is saving approximately $3,300 per year from this lighting upgrade.
The bonus rebate that Heartland received is offered to all Princeton Public Utilities electric business customers through December 31.  It applies to each new fixture installed when replacing any existing HID high bay fixtures (on ceilings heights greater than 15 feet) with linear fluorescents or LED fixtures. You can also receive another $10 bonus rebate for each new occupancy sensor installed to control any qualified new high bay fixtures. These bonus rebates are in addition to our standard fixture and sensor rebates.

Princeton Public Utilities recently provided Walmart with various energy efficiency rebates for their new store.  With PPU’s wide range of program offerings, Walmart qualified for rebates through the use of: high efficiency air-conditioning; cooler and freezer cases with LED lighting, no-energy and low-energy glass doors, and high-efficiency fans; and energy-efficient lighting including LEDs and fluorescent fixtures that dim when sunlight is present.
