The City of San Marcos Commercial Lighting Rebate Program encourages replacement of older inefficient lighting products with newer energy-efficient technologies. Common lighting upgrades include replacing existing fluorescent lighting with LEDs, replacing high-pressure sodium and metal halides with LEDs, replacing incandescent exit signs with LED, and installing lighting controls such as occupancy sensors.
The lighting rebate program is open to existing multi-family, commercial, institutional and industrial San Marcos Electric Utility (SMEU) customers. Pre-approval is required in order to qualify for this rebate. Rebate amount is $250 per kW reduced, up to maximum of $12,500.
