Variable Frequency Drive Business Rebates

  • Rebate amount: $16 per hp (all sizes)

Variable frequency drives (VFDs) offer commercial and industrial customers better control of energy usage. Rather than the "all-on or all-off" approach used in more traditional motors and equipment, variable frequency drives only require the amount of energy necessary to run at the time, providing a more moderated use of power.

The eligibility requirements are:

  • Commercial customers, who have been paying into the DSM mechanism, are eligible to apply for rebates within 24 months of the date the upgrades were installed.
  • Industrial customers who pay into the DSM mechanism are eligible to apply for rebates made on or after January 1, 2019.
  • LG&E gas-only customers are not eligible for this program.
