Efficiency Alberta... Instant rebates start tomorrow?

I feel like I should put the Efficiency in quotes... But whatever.

According to the website, we should be able to get $15 rebates on recessed lights. I'm curious if that means I can go into Costco, grab a handful or $25 LED recessed lights, and only pay $10 each? Will there be other catches? The website is pretty sparse on information... Does anyone know any more than what the website offers?

The big catch is that only specific retailers offer it. For example, I do not think Ikea is a participating retailer. This may also prevent some of the local suppliers (haven't checked if Bartle & Gibson, Robinson, Best, etc. are on the list) where some shop.

Just went to Costco, picked up 12 LED potlights and an outdoor motion sensor LED light for the garage. Saved $15 on each one. Max of 25 per SKU per purchase, rebate applied at the till. Potlights ended up being $20 each, which was awesome.

I think HD, Lowes, Best Buy, etc are all participating.

Another big catch is, its only for "energy star" certified bulbs which drastically reduces the choices available. Home Depot etc. have a ton of LED bulbs but probably less than 1/4 of them are "energy star" certified
