​High-efficiency Commercial HVAC Rebate: Replacement Systems

Almost half of business energy bills can be attributed to heating and cooling. Low cost replacement equipment is generally less efficient and results in unnecessary and avoidable energy costs. Puget Sound Energy offers a rebate for qualifying replacement HVAC equipment.

Qualifying equipment

  • Sites will require a pre-authorization prior to removal of existing unit to determine unit type
  • Sites with Variable Air Volume (VAV) units are not eligible if they are the existing unit
  • Customer shall install an HVAC unit that replaces an existing unit with a new HVAC unit that meets either the Consortium for Energy Efficiency's (CEE) Tier I or Tier II standards
  • Fuel switching from natural gas to electricity shall not be allowed
  • Customer must, at a minimum, have PSE electric service
