Incentives for Energy-Efficient New Construction

Building a new facility beyond the code minimum requirements can be achieved in many ways. A significant reduction of a building’s lifetime energy consumption can be achieved within the initial building design process. To help reduce the capital cost(s), the PUD pays incentives up to 100% of additional/incremental cost for energy-efficient measures not already required by code. Along the way, the PUD provides your project team with technical advice to help ensure that the project delivers expected energy savings. To learn more, click on our Participation Process.  


Customers must submit an application (to the right) and required documents. PUD project authorization is required prior to equipment purchase. Please see New Construction Program Guidelines (to the right) for details.

LED lamps and/or fixtures must be on one of the approved lists. See links to eligiblity lists from Energy Star, DesignLights Consortium and Lighting Design Lab below.

Incentive Rates:

Incentive ranges from 10¢ to 25¢ per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electrical energy savings. For details, please see New Construction Program Incentive Summary table (to the right).
