Major HVAC controls upgrade

Incentives cover up to 50 percent of the cost of upgrading your HVAC controls

Incentive levels vary depenDing on the services provided by PSE, the energy use of your facility and the verified savings. At least a 5 percent savings is expected. There is a base incentive after the installation is complete and then a performance incentive after the system is in place for a minimum of 10 months. See the table below for details.

To get started, submit an application and a PSE engineer will contact you to discuss the project.
