PSE residential customers can take advantage of incentives on energy-efficient appliances, equipment and upgrades, including discounts on: insulation; converting home heating systems from electric to natural gas; installing ductless heat pumps, heat pump water heaters, and natural gas furnaces; and rebates for clothes washers and refrigerators; CFL and LED lighting, plus many other incentives. Also, PSE’s Contractor Alliance Network connects customers with pre-screened, independent contractors, like those recognized through this award, who are committed to helping customers make safe, dependable and efficient energy choices to ensure their home or business improvement projects are successful.
