How to Use the Online Application Portal

With Efficiency Navigator, you can complete, submit, and track your prescriptive C&I lighting and non-lighting rebates online. The instructions on this page will help you get started. If it’s your first time using the portal, you’ll begin by creating an account to be approved by our team. If you already have an account, you can dive right in and work on your application.

Please note: If you’re looking for rebate applications for new construction, or you have a great idea for a rebate customized to your project, visit our business rebate page. Online applications for these programs are not available at this time.
