Lighting is a significant operating expense in existing buildings. By upgrading lighting, owners can improve the economics of their buildings while enhancing the visual comfort and productivity of occupants. We provide a wide range of technical guidance for upgrading the efficiency of existing lighting.
We offer incentives for a variety of lighting control technologies, including occupancy sensors and daylight harvesting systems. Incentives are available for more than two dozen types of lighting products, including:
- Remote Mounted Occupancy Sensors
- Daylight Dimming Systems
- Occupancy Controlled Step-Dimming Systems
- Wall-Mounted Occupancy Sensors
- Wall-Mounted Vacancy Occupancy Sensors
- Photocell Sensors (lighting systems on 24/7)
- High Bay Occupancy Control Systems
Networked lighting control systems connect multiple fixtures together and blend control strategies based on the space, including occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, task tuning, and dimming. Advanced control systems maximize flexibility, comfort, and aesthetic, while also generating significant savings. Customers can take advantage of the latest in lighting control technology through the Performance Lighting Program
This incentive is available to businesses in Massachusetts that are electric customers of these Program Administrators:
- Cape Light Compact
- National Grid
The Performance Lighting Application is for commercial and industrial customers who have existing buildings or are building new facilities and install high efficiency lighting fixtures and controls utilizing an optimized lighting design that exceeds the code mandated Lighting Power Density by a minimum of 10%.
The Lighting Systems & Sensors Application provides incentives to facilitate the identification and installation of premium efficient lighting equipment.
Download the Performance Lighting or the Lighting - Systems & Sensors applications for eligibility details, terms, and conditions or contact your Program Administrator for more information.
Contact your Program Administrator before purchasing and installing any equipment or for more information.
Not sure who your Program Administrator is? Use the Find Your Program Administrator tool to see the contact information for your gas or electric service area.
For projects that already exceed MA Energy code and are only interested in control systems, please contact your Program Administrator for information on options.
Projects that qualified for the previous version of the Networked Lighting Controls program (2016 and prior) may still be considered on a case by case basis. Please contact your Program Administrator for more information.
