Commercial retrofit grants
Get up to 70 percent of the cost covered for energy efficiency upgrades
Save on energy efficiency upgrades for your business site with customized incentives that support your energy efficiency project and goals. Call PSE before you begin your project, or submit an application, and a PSE engineer will review your project and begin pre-approval for your commercial retrofit grants.
For most non-lighting retrofits, PSE incentives provide up to $0.30 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) or $5.00 per therm of projected annual energy savings, up to 70 percent of the total cost of equipment and installation.
PSE, Seattle City Light, Snohomish County PUD and Tacoma Power offer a $225 per ton rebate for electric and $50 per ton rebate for gas toward qualifying ARC installations.
An Advanced Rooftop Unit Control (ARC) is an energy-saving retrofit solution for constant volume, single-zone packaged rooftop equipment.

Each retrofit grant is calculated individually by a PSE Energy Management Engineer (EME) to determine the projected annual energy savings and PSE incentive. Pre-approval is required for these incentives and PSE will need to do a site visit prior to the installation of the new equipment. All Retrofit custom grants are subject to PSE cost-effectiveness standards.
