AEP Ohio Business Incentive Programs

Presenter TBA

AEP Ohio

AEP Ohio business incentive programs have provided incentives to stimulate energy efficiency in the commercial markets over the past 7 years.  Lighting measures have comprised the majority of savings for commercial and industrial programs.  In recognition of this success and to provide customers with a better, more efficient, and higher savings solution, AEP OH has initiated a lighting controls initiative targeting commercial markets. The Advanced Lighting and Controls (ALC) program builds upon existing core programs to deploy advanced lighting technologies through newly offered approaches that significantly drive deeper energy savings per project. The program has been specifically developed to promote the best available technologies by educating the key market stakeholders, adopting a new evaluation protocol, and providing an enhanced incentive to encourage early participation.

A Continuing Education Credit will be provided to those that attend at least one speaking session.
