Puget Sound Energy (PSE) offers two different programs for multifamily energy efficiency rebates: the Multifamily Retrofit Program and the Multifamily New Construction Program. In order to participate, buildings must be located in the PSE electric or natural gas service territory.
PSE can provide a custom retrofit grant for any energy-efficiency project that meets specified cost-effectiveness criteria and other PSE program requirements. To be eligible, customers must purchase electricity and/or natural gas for commercial, industrial or other non-residential facilities from PSE at the site where the equipment or system is installed. Projects may involve HVAC systems, process improvements, heat recovery, variable speed drives and lighting upgrades. Custom retrofit grants require pre-approval and are subject to availability of incentives.
PSE provides a flexible incentive program to help fund energy-efficiency measures in new construction. Includes custom grants for whole buildings and building components, custom grants for third-party building commissioning, and rebates for building components and equipment. Building Commissioning and Whole Building incentives are based on building size and achieved energy savings. Incentives in the Building Components portion of the program are based upon the incremental costs of eligible equipment upgrades. Contact PSE for additional information on these programs.
Puget Sound Energy's (PSE) Energy Efficient Equipment Rebate Programs offer a variety of incentives to non-residential customers. Eligible technologies include lighting measures, air conditioners, heat pumps, ECM motors, programmable thermostats, motors, variable speed drives, food service equipment, clothes washers, and lodging industry measures. View the program web site listed above to see all equipment requirements and rebate amounts. Some rebates vary by equipment capacity, efficiency, and fuel source. All equipment requirements must be met in order to receive rebates.
The District of Columbia offers a commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program. In order to receive financing through the commercial PACE program, applicants must first have an energy efficiency audit performed on the property. The audit must show energy cost savings that can reasonably be expected to equal or exceed the cost of the improvements and interest on the loan. Reasonable costs of any energy audit may be included in the amount of the loan upon request by the applicant.
