Direct Discount Program

Want to be more energy efficient but fear the upfront cost and time? The PPL Direct Discount Program provides attractive rebates for measures such as lighting, compressed air, and refrigeration to help small businesses offset project costs. Best of all, there’s no paperwork, just quick and long-term savings. All small business GS-1 or GS-3 rate code customers are eligible.

Developed with the Small Business in Mind

  • Offers higher rebates to help offset the capital investment for energy efficiency projects
  • Requires that improvements be installed by an approved PPL contractor
  • No application for the customer. The contractor handles the paperwork!
  • All small and medium PPL business customers with a GS1 or GS3 rate code are eligible. Not sure of your rate code? Check your current utility bill. If it states GS1 or GS3, you’re eligible for a rebate
  • For retrofit projects only. If you have a new construction project, it can be submitted through our Standard program

Program Highlights:

  • All projects require pre-approval prior to beginning construction in order to remain eligible
  • Efficient Equipment rebates calculated at $0.15/kWh based on kWh savings (3X the standard program) – up to 80% of total project cost
  • Custom projects are now available! Rebates calculated at $0.14/kWh based on annual kWh savings (over 2X the standard program) – up to 80% of total project cost
  • Rebates are paid directly to the contractor. Customer is responsible for a much lower portion of the project costs due to the rebate
  • Lighting upgrades requires integrated fixtures; no bulbs or lamps
