Important Notice about CLEO

To increase participation and better serve our customers, the LADWP is pleased to introduce a new, more flexible lighting rebate program to replace the Commercial Lighting Efficiency Offer (CLEO). The last day to submit CLEO applications was Tuesday, September 30, 2014. The new Commercial Lighting Incentive Program (CLIP) began October 1, 2014.

CLIP your energy use with new efficient lighting and controls!

LADWP’s Commercial Lighting Incentive Program (CLIP) provides rebates on the installation of newly purchased and installed energy-saving lighting and controls. With CLIP’s calculated savings approach, you can tailor your lighting efficiency upgrades to better meet your lighting needs, attain greater energy saving, and receive higher incentive payments!

Incentive levels are based on the calculated energy savings of each project, with rates ranging from $0.05 to $0.15 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of annualized savings.
