Energy efficiency help for industry

Chelan County PUD’s Resource$mart program helps industrial customers install facility improvements that can provide significant energy and cost savings. These include:

  • Lighting
  • CO2 scrubbers
  • Refrigeration compressor controls
  • VFD refrigeration fans
  • VFD air compressors
  • VFD refrigeration compressors
  • Ammonia refrigeration air purgers

Under most programs, qualifying customers receive 18 cents per annual kilowatt hour saved, up to 75 percent of the total cost to purchase and install energy efficiency improvements, whichever is less. The incentive applies to conservation projects that can show documented energy savings through metering verification or benchmarking using monthly billing analysis.

For more information, email Jim White, senior energy conservation engineer, or call (509) 661-4829.
