LED Lighting Grant

North Dakota grant available to ND Public Buildings where the ND Department of Commerce pays up to 50% of the costs to update your lighting to an Energy Efficient LED system. General information is listed below.

The Grant

The ND Department of Commerce is offering a grant for energy efficiency improvements to public buildings. The grant pays for 50% of your project to retrofit your existing lighting system with LED lighting. Utilizing this grant, full returns have been seen in 2-3 years; as well as thousands in energy savings thereafter. 

Misconception on Cost

There is a misconception that such a project could cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. This is not typical. Many fixtures that are in good condition can be left in place and retrofit with new LED lighting systems. This system consists of disconnecting the fluorescent ballast and wiring the fixture direct to the new tubes. In turn, it will eliminate future ballast replacements and create an LED fixture with only one fail point (the tube). Making the new system highly affordable and greatly reduce future energy costs. As mentioned, LED’s typically pay for themselves within 2-3 years; with the grant money be utilized.
