Anderson-based Solas Ray Lighting has launched a program designed to connect businesses throughout the state with energy-efficiency strategies, rebates, and tax credits. Rebate Indiana, which was established early this year by the company and partner Continental Inc., is designed to fill the void left by programs like the defunct Energizing Indiana initiative. Shortly after Energizing Indiana expired at the end of 2014, several major Hoosier energy suppliers started their own stopgap programs.
Solas CEO, Judy Nagengast believes that executives with large commercial operations are missing out on huge savings. Many rebates and financial support go unused either because people don’t know about them, the application information doesn’t seem clear or believe that there might be a ‘catch’ to receiving the financial rebate or tax credit. This is especially true of commercial operations, where executives and managers may unnecessarily distrust or find rebate or tax credit applications to be confusing.
The company, which manufactures LED lighting for commercial and residential applications, says the program has also led to some partnerships among businesses it may not have otherwise dealt with.
The Rebate Indiana program says it supplies information on utilities including Plainfield-based Duke Energy Indiana, Hoosier Energy in Bloomington, Fort Wayne-based Indiana Michigan Power, Indianapolis Power and Light Co., Evansville-based Vectren Corp. and many others. There are many cost-saving ways to upgrade your facility and take advantage of available rebate systems that are in place now.
