Energy-Saving Lighting Solutions for Small Businesses


Ameren Missouri is offering enhanced cash incentives for energy efficient lighting upgrades for small business customers through the Small Business Direct Install Program (SBDI). Eligible projects include a variety of high efficiency lighting upgrades, LED exit signs, occupancy sensors, and lighting controls. 


What you get:

  • Cash incentives toward the purchase of new lighting and lighting equipment. Incentives reduce your initial investment and you only pay the difference of the remaining project cost.
  • Installation of new efficient lighting equipment scheduled and completed at your convenience;
  • Old, inefficient lighting equipment removed from your site;
  • A no-hassle incentive application process handled by an approved Small Business Direct Install Service Provider;
  • An opportunity to reduce operating costs by reducing energy use.

By participating in the Small Business Direct Install Program, customers also will receive a free assessment to identify additional energy-saving opportunities.
