What is the Renewable Energy Advantage Program?
PSE created the Renewable Energy Advantage Program (REAP) in order to encourage the growth of renewable electricity production in its service area in support of WAC 458-20-273 through payments to the customer for energy produced.
This voluntary set of rules allows Washington state utilities the option of participating in an incentive program for eligible customers who use solar PV, wind or anaerobic digesters to generate their own electricity. Unlike net metering, micro-hydro generators and fuel cells are not eligible, under terms of the WAC.
The incentives are available to an individual, business, or local governmental entity that generates electricity on its own property.
Eligible customers may be paid from 12¢ to 54¢ per economic development kilowatt-hour (kWh). 2006 – 2007 averages will be between 15¢ and 18¢ per kWh generated.
For more information about REAP, call a PSE Energy Advisor at 1-800-562-1482,
Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
