Lighting for Business

Switch to better lighting

Incentives are available for indoor and outdoor lighting for both retrofit and new construction. Incentives help business customers modernize lighting at their shops and buildings by paying part of the cost.

Retrofit projects are eligible for 18 cents per kilowatt hour saved per year, up to 75 percent of the cost to purchase and install energy efficient lighting and controls.  
New construction is eligible for incentives of 6 cents per kilowatt hour saved per year.

The incentive depends on the existing and proposed power consumption of the light fixtures as well as the number of actual operating hours.

Customers, lighting suppliers and contractors:

To receive the incentive, fill out the calculator or worksheet and email or mail to the PUD. Submit a copy of the invoice or receipt showing total project purchase and installation costs. A PUD representative will then visit the site to confirm the lights are installed and are being operated as stated. Pre-approval by Chelan PUD is not required for incentives less than $25,000. Incentive amounts greater than $25,000 that do not have pre-approval are subject to availability of incentive dollars budgeted by Chelan PUD.

For help filling out the calculator or worksheet or for more information, email Scott Stanford, commercial energy efficiency adviser, or call (509) 661-4187.
