Energy efficiency help for businesses
Chelan County PUD’s Resource$mart program helps
industrial and commercial customers install facility
improvements that can provide significant energy and
cost savings. These include:
- Electric Resistance to Heat Pump Conversions
- Ductless Heat Pumps
- Irrigation Pump Controls
- Variable Speed Controls for Fans
- Heat Pump Water Heaters
- Grocery Refrigeration Systems
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.
Find details on lighting upgrades, including a lighting project calculator and worksheet, here. Contact
Scott Stanford, commercial energy efficiency advisor, for
details by email or at (509) 661-4187.
