Incentives for Energy-Efficient New Construction

Building a new facility beyond 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.  


Energy performance must exceed the current WA State Energy Code (Commercial) requirements by at least 10%.

Customers must submit an Application and required documents (as listed in the workbooks) and obtain project authorization from the PUD prior to beginning the project.

LED lamps and/or fixtures must on one of the approved lists: Lighting Design Lab (LDL), Energy Star & the Design Lights Consortium found here.
