Metro LED has worked extensively with NYSERDA, National Grid and other utilities to facilitate rebates on LED lighting projects. We have worked on both pre-qualified projects, and performance based programs. As part of our auditing services, we work with these partners to understand the current status of rebate programs and to meet the qualifications needed to maximize the ROI of the project through the use of rebates.
Through our partnering activities with manufacturers, we work with testing labs and the DesignLights Consortium process to qualify fixtures for the DLC list. Our engineers work with testing labs, as well as UL or ETL to obtain for our partners the documentation needed to support applications to be listed on the Qualified Products List.
