Distributor Instant Discount Program/Midstream

Customer notifications - Please remember to advise customers that the discount applied to the retail price was sponsored by the PPL Business Energy Efficiency Program. This should be present on their invoice and/or bill. With this notification, it’s important that they are aware that either the program team or the program evaluators may contact them with questions or to set up an appointment to see where the products were installed.

Pre-approvals - Any projects that are greater than $1,800 in incentive funding must be pre-approved. When working with your distributor, make sure that all projects above this amount are submitted. If a project is not pre-approved, the program cannot assure that funds over $1,800 will be reimbursed.

No project is too small! - When purchasing low quantities for your business or customer, keep in mind that there is no minimum for the Distributor Instant Discount Program. As long as the product being purchased is listed with ENERGY STAR ® or DesignLights Consortium ® in one of the categories listed on the program flyer, it is eligible—even one or two lamps or fixtures.
