The Municipal Traffic Signal Lighting Incentive Program is offered to governmental customers of FirstEnergy’s Pennsylvania utilities (Met-Ed, Penelec, Penn Power and West Penn Power) to encourage participants to install high-efficiency traffic signals through per-unit incentives.

Flat-rate incentives per signal are offered for converting to the following lighting technologies:

Effective Dates

To qualify for incentives through the Municipal Traffic Signal Lighting Incentive Program, equipment must be new and installed after June 1, 2016.

Pre-Approval Requirements

Program participants are encouraged to seek pre-approval before purchasing their proposed equipment to ensure it meets program requirements and is eligible for incentives.  If your project was completed or installed on June 1, 2016, or later and you did not obtain pre-approval, then you may apply for incentives no later than 180 days from the date of project completion (completion is defined as all equipment being installed and operable).

How Do I Apply For Incentives?

Step 1 – The participant should complete and submit a Municipal Traffic Signal Lighting Program application online and upload required documents through the application portal. The following documents are required for a pre-approval (if the project is already complete, applicants should also submit the required documentation listed in Step 3):

  1. Completed lighting calculator spreadsheet
  2. Manufacturers’ specification (cut) sheets for the proposed/installed equipment. Please highlight all relevant information, such as the equipment efficiency ratings.
  3. Completed and signed W-9 tax form for the incentive payee. The W-9 form must be current and dated within the last 24 months.
  4. If applicable, customers who wish to issue all or a portion of their incentive to a 3rd party should complete a Dual Incentive Payments form.
  5. Copy of utility bill to confirm account number and service address. If desired, the participant may obscure all cost and rate related information

Step 2 – The program administrator will notify the applicant via email when the review is complete and funds have been reserved.

Step 3 – Once the project is complete, the participant should review the approved application for any changes to the project that occurred during installation and make any needed corrections. The following final documentation should be submitted to the program administrator for review:

  1. Revised lighting calculator spreadsheet (this requirement is waived if no changes were made during construction).
  2. Detailed, itemized invoices or proofs of purchase for the equipment installed
  3. Manufacturers’ specification (cut) sheets for any additional equipment installed (if applicable)
  4. Completed letter of attestation

Upon receipt and verification of all required documentation, the incentive check will be processed and mailed to the applicant or to an authorized representative, if requested on the application.
