Light Up Your Station & Save

LED Canopy Lighting Program

From May 2014 through December 2015, CERTs helped Minnesota service stations upgrade their canopy lighting to energy-saving LEDtechnology.

From May 2014 through December 2015, CERTs helped Minnesota service stations upgrade their canopy lighting to energy-saving LED technology.

LED lighting can help reduce canopy energy costs up to 75%, create a brighter and more attractive station, reduce maintenance costs, and more. CERTs connected service station owners and their electricians with quality canopy lighting products at competitive prices, and helped them reduce upgrade costs further with utility rebates.
This campaign ended December 2015. This page remains available for reference.


  Campaign Overview

Why upgrade your canopy to LED lighting?

The Clean Energy Resource Teams can help you:

  • Access high-quality and competitively-priced canopy lighting products
  • Reduce upgrade costs further with utility rebates

Why move forward with this improvement?

  • Project can pay for itself through the cost savings from reduced energy use in 3 to 4 years without utility rebates
  • Utility rebates can vary from $200 to $3,500 and if sought, could bring the payback down to 1.5 years
  • Clean, bright white lighting attracts new customers to your business and provides an attractive look and safety
  • Less time pulling out the ladder to replace bulbs means fewer maintenance costs and a safer work environment

  Utility Rebates for LED Canopy Lighting

Offset canopy LED lighting upgrade costs with your electric utility rebates.

Your electric utility wants to help you pay for your energy-saving LED lighting upgrade with rebates. We’ve search high and low for the utility rebates that could be used for a LED lighting project in a fuel pump canopy. See if your utility’s rebate information is on our list. If not, we encourage you to give them a call to see if they offer any rebates for energy efficiency projects.

This campaign ended in December 2015. The rebate list is no longer maintained. It is here for reference, but be sure to contact your utility to learn what rebates exist today!
