Indianapolis Power and Lighting Rebates

Indianapolis Power and Lighting (IPL) is offering prescriptive rebates on energy efficient lighting. The  program covers both long- and short-term investments. It will enable you to install the efficient lighting programs at a lower price as a result of the incentives while enabling you to save money you would have incurred in electric bills in the long-run. Additional programs, tools and rebates to help you save energy are available through IPL’s partnership with Energizing Indiana.

Rebate Details

A rebate is offered for replacement of one to one equipment unless otherwise specified. After you replace the equipment, you must remove it from service and properly dispose/recycle it. The replaced equipment cannot be resold or dumped illegally.

The rebate is for fixtures installed indoors. The only exception to this rule is for lights installed in parking garages and exterior LED or induction lighting. All other outdoor lighting projects are not eligible for the rebate unless you apply for custom incentives. Rebates cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost (this includes equipment but excludes sales tax and external labor).


  • Applicant must be an IPL business customer and location of installed equipment must have an IPL electric service ID
  • All fixtures must operate for a minimum of 1800 hours to be eligible for rebates
  • All linear fluorescent and metal halide fixtures must have electronic ballasts
  • Post–installation light levels are expected to meet the current IESNA recommendations and comply with all applicable electrical, safety and energy codes

Application Process

  1. Download the application form.
  2. Complete and fill in the relevant information on the form.
  3. Submit/mail to IPL headquarters.
  4. Once completed paperwork is submitted, rebate payments are generally made within 6–8 weeks.

    I am unable to download the application for rebates (will not click through, says there is a security issue. The Oaks Academy has two locations (54k sq. ft. and 74k sq. ft.) and we are interested in upgrading our lighting to more energy-efficient fixtures, and would like to take advantage of the rebate program. Please advise. Thank you.
