The Large Industrial Program (any account over 300 kw demand) has expended the funds for the current rebate phase for new Rebate Applications. As the terms of the rebate program mention the program is open as long as funds are available. As of April 1, 2021, Duquesne Light Company will no longer be accepting new Rebate applications for the Large Industrial Program until the NEW Rebate Program starts on June 1, 2021. Rebate projects with a COMPLETION of Installation ON or AFTER June 1, 2021 maybe submitted to determine if they can be rebated under the new rebate programs. Currently Duquesne Light is working on finalizing the New Rebate programs that will start on June 1, 2021. So at this time, we do not have the rebate requirements or rebate levels determined. Please check back close to June 1, 2021 when we will be able to provide more clarity on Rebate Program requirements. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and appreciate your understanding. If you have any questions about a future project that would be installed after June 1, 2021, you may contact Franklin Energy at 877-334-1715 or [email protected].
