DP&L Custom Rebate Program

Incentives customized for your business


The Custom Rebate Program provides non-residential customers with generous incentives for equipment purchases and industrial process improvements that reduce energy consumption and demand. These rebates are for equipment that is not covered by DP&L’s other business rebate programs and are generally best suited for customized industry-specific or facility-specific applications.

Rebate Amounts

$0.05 per kWh saved + $50 per kW saved

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning
$0.10 per kWh saved + $100 per kW saved

$0.08 per kWh saved + $100 per kW saved

Equipment must operate regularly between 12-6 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday-Friday, and during the months of June-August to be eligible for the demand (kW) portion of the rebate.

The incentives listed above are subject to change at DP&L’s discretion.
