All projects must be pre-authorized and approved by SUB before installation to be eligible for incentives from SUB.

Applications will be considered for approval on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability of SUB funds.
LED Lighting and Controls incentive amounts are adjustments of values from SUB’s version of the SUB lighting calculator 5/22.  You may download, fill out and submit the LC to SUB. SUB will review and may change your LC inputs to conform to standard practice. Note that incentives displayed by the LC must be reduced by the formulas below:

Standard Incentive amounts from the SUB Lighting Calculator will be adjusted by the following formulas:

if Standard Incentive is in this range:            then Adjusted Incentive is Calculated by this formula:

$0  –  $10,000                                                     No change to Standard Incentive,

$10,000  –  $50,000                                           $5,000 + 50% × Standard Incentive,

$50,000 – $200,000                                           $20,000 + 20% × Standard Incentive,

$200,000 – $400,000                                         $40,000 +  10% × Standard Incentive.

SUB pays the calculated Adjusted Incentive. This applies cumulatively to all SUB incentive projects of all types at one location for two years.

Please contact SUB if you plan to submit a project Application or if you have any questions about the status of existing or pending projects.
