Business Instant Discounts

Looking to save money on lighting and HVAC equipment? Whether you are a customer or a Service Provider, Pepco’s Business Instant Discounts Program makes it easy to save on select purchases and improve energy efficiency.

We offer instant discounts on qualified lighting and HVAC products when you purchase from local participating distributors. You will connect with sales representatives who are lighting and HVAC experts and can offer personalized advice on products that meet the needs of your business. No need to bargain hunt or apply for incentives—your sales representative at your participating local distributor will help you select qualifying equipment and apply the discounts automatically to your purchase price.

When you replace your lighting or HVAC with energy-efficient models, you can:

  • Save on energy-efficient products—right at the counter or over the phone.
  • Lower energy costs and save money each month with energy-efficient equipment.
  • Refresh interior and exterior spaces.

Getting started is easy! Simply search for a distributor near you and then ask the sales representative about the Pepco Business Instant Discounts Program. You can also place an order over the phone by contacting your preferred distributor.
