Horticultural Lighting and Lighting Controls

Lighting upgrades are often the best—and easiest—way to make energy-efficient improvements to your industrial grow facility. Upgrading to new energy-efficient lighting and lighting controls can save energy and improve the work environment. Energy Trust makes these upgrades more affordable with cash incentives for lighting and lighting control projects.

  1. Establish your eligibility.

    Energy Trust provides cash incentives to Oregon businesses for energy-efficiency and renewable energy projects. To qualify, you must:

    • Be served by Portland General Electric or Pacific Power and contribute to the public purpose charge. Check your utility bill or contact us if you have questions.
    • Have a project site in Oregon.
  2. Contact an Energy Trust Business Lighting trade ally.

    To receive incentives, you must work with a qualified Energy Trust Business Lighting trade ally. Your trade ally will submit your project documentation to Energy Trust on your behalf.

    If your lighting project is eligible, you will receive an Incentive Application Form (120L) from Energy Trust. You must review and sign (via DocuSign) by the deadline listed on the form.

  3. Have equipment installed.

    Your lighting project must be completed, with all documentation submitted, before the incentive reservation expiration date listed on your Incentive Application Form (120L). Your trade ally will submit invoices and all other final completion documentation to Energy Trust on your behalf.

    Note: A post-installation verification may apply. Your trade ally will assist with verification documentation and scheduling arrangements.

  4. Receive your incentive.

    You will receive a Completion Certificate form (140L) from Energy Trust. You must review and sign (via DocuSign) before you receive your incentive.

The solutions below are those available for industrial horticultural grow operations in Oregon. Additional requirements may apply. Contact a Business Lighting trade ally for more details.

To receive lighting incentives, you must work with an Energy Trust Business Lighting trade ally. We will not accept incentive applications from non-trade allies, or directly from customers who are planning to install their own projects.
