Franklin County PUD's Residential Rebate Program offers a variety of rebates for energy efficiency improvements for homes located in the Franklin PUD service area.

Under regulations adopted by the D.C. Public Service Commission, all electricity suppliers and electricity companies operating in the District of Columbia must report to the Commission every six months the fuel mix of electricity sold and the emissions produced. The fuel mix report must be in a format similar to the information provided by the PJM Environmental Information Services (PJM EIS).
Washington’s retail electric suppliers must disclose details regarding the fuel mix of their electric generation to customers. Electric suppliers must provide such information in a standard format annually to customers. In addition, most larger electric suppliers must provide at least two additional times annually a publication that contains the standard disclosure label, a customer service phone number to request the disclosure label or a reference to an electronic version of the disclosure label.

Grays Harbor PUD's net-metering program differs slightly from what is required by Washington state law in that Grays Harbor PUD reimburses customers for net excess generation (NEG), at the end of each year, at 50% of the utility's retail rate. State law allows utilities to require customers to surrender NEG to the utility, without reimbursement, at the end of a 12-month billing cycle. Grays Harbor PUD has voluntarily gone beyond the state requirement in order to encourage customers to use renewable energy systems.
Grays Harbor PUD's Non-Residential Rebate Program offers financial incentives to its commercial, agricultural, industrial, and institutional customers for the installation of energy efficient equipment in their facilities. The program provides rebates for any project with verifiable electric energy savings, including large HVAC, lighting, or refrigeration projects. These rebates are based solely on annual electric energy savings. Rebate amounts are calculated based upon annual kilowatt-hours saved, at the rate of $0.17/kWh, up to 70% of project cost.
