Seattle Electrical Rebates for BusinessDid you know that both Seattle City Light and Puget Sound Energy offer electrical rebates for business when they upgrade to energy-efficient commercial lighting?

By taking advantage of these rebates, businesses can not only enjoy energy savings over the long term, but also enjoy some great financial incentives!

Seattle City Light

Seattle City Light will reimburse your organization for installing more efficient equipment and lighting, with the potential for incentive amounts as high as 70% of the installation cost, according to the Seattle City Light website. Keep in mind that all incentives must be approved before installation begins and that a contract must be signed with Seattle City Light before your business begins purchasing equipment.

Incentives are available for hard wired lighting, screw-in or twist-in fixture retrofits, lighting controls and direct load reduction lighting. Click here for a full list of incentives available through Seattle City Light.

Not only does this helpful program allow an organization to receive a discount at the time of purchase, but there isn’t any cumbersome paperwork since the venders who participate in PSE’s program know which products qualify for rebates.
