Small Business Direct Install Rebates (SBDI)

Get Rebates for Small Businesses

Save energy, save money and help the environment—you can do all three with our Small Business Direct Install (SBDI) rebates. The SBDI rebates are for small business owners to help offset the cost of energy-saving upgrades that are cleaner, greener and more cost-effective. And, remember to save even more on energy through simple changes like cleaning or replacing HVAC air filters on a regular basis.

In 2022, our Michigan SBDI business customers saved almost 227,000 kWh with energy-saving projects. You helped the environment by reducing emissions equal to a gas-powered car driving 411,859 miles! *
