United Power Utilities Logo

In Colorado, there are plenty of rebate and incentive programs available to encourage LED lighting. Utilities Companies, such as United Power, provide multiple rebates to promote the reduction of energy use.


United Power is a rural electric cooperative, providing electric service to homes and businesses throughout Colorado’s northern front range. Surrounding Denver on three sides, United Power serves 900 square miles along the north central range of the Colorado Rockies. They are currently offering several energy efficiency rebates for residential, and commercial customers within that service area.


Energy Efficient Appliance Rebates

Members of United Power can benefit from energy efficient appliance rebates by switching to LED bulb lights, LED commercial lighting, LED pole mounted lighting, and commercial LED lighting replacements.
