Purchasing qualified equipment outside of our distributor list is ok, you’ll receive your rebate directly from PSE if you follow these steps. Once you’ve made your purchase you will need to:
- Fill out the commercial foodservice rebate application
- Make a copy of your equipment invoice(s) (rebate-eligible items and quantities circled)
- Complete and sign the W-9 Taxpayer Identification Form for your business
Submit all of the above to PSE in one of two ways:
- Email it to email@example.com
- Print and mail it to the address shown on the first page of the application form
Deep Fat Fryers
An ENERGY STAR® qualified fryer can lower your energy bills every year by upwards of $2,000. They can operate with up to 25 percent more energy efficiency than standard-efficiency fryers, and often enable shorter cook times and higher production rates so you can cook more food faster. In addition, the cost savings resulting from how the efficiency fryers handle cooking oil can increase your cost savings by another 50%!
An ENERGY STAR® qualified connectionless steamer heats water from an internal reservoir instead of a water connection and prevents steam from escaping during operation. So you heat only what you use and put it to work as efficiently as possible, saving you valuable money and energy.
Some water utilities also offer incentives for qualified, water- and energy-efficient commercial foodservice equipment. Be sure to check with your water provider for any possible additional incentives on connectionless steamers.
An ENERGY STAR® qualified griddle is 10% more efficient than your standard model, saving you an easy $100 per year in utility fuel costs. In addition to energy savings, efficient griddles also improve the uniformity of the temperature across the plate and allow for higher production capacity.
Depending on size, ENERGY STAR® qualified hot-food holding cabinets can save upwards of 1,000 kWh or about $100 per year. In addition to saving you money, efficient hot-food holding cabinets incorporate better insulation, reducing heat loss, and may also offer additional energy-saving options like magnetic door gaskets, auto door closures, or Dutch doors. The insulation of the cabinet also offers better temperature uniformity within the cabinet to keep your food consistently heated throughout.
Energy-efficient electric and natural gas convection ovens cook with more than 70 percent and 40 percent greater efficiency than standard models, respectively. Use PSE's incentives to save on qualifying convection ovens and lower your energy bills, no matter what you serve.
Combination ("Combi") Ovens
The programmability of a combination oven (often called a "combi-oven") lets you cook food in a dry-heat mode, a steam mode or both with different temperature settings, optimizing your energy cost and energy usage.
A rack oven is versatile enough to bake, roast or warm prepared food in high volume, so its energy efficiency is crucial to keeping your business's energy bills low. And no matter the size of your menu, using PSE's incentive on energy-efficient rack ovens is a piece of cake.
Deck ovens vary from convection ovens in the way in which heat is transferred to the product being baked. Deck ovens use conduction heat to bake products which happens when heat travels directly from a hot stone or deck to the loaf of bread or sheet pan being baked. Doing so efficiently can save your business thousands of dollars over an inefficient model. PSE electric customers qualify for this rebate so choose an efficient model and get baking!
Conveyor ovens move food through a heated chamber at a constant speed. They can handle high volume production and can be stacked in multiples for a small footprint. Save up to $1,000 a year off your gas bill and get a rebate for this kitchen workhorse.
Standard manual wrapping machines, also called overwrappers or handwrappers, use continuously heated components to cut and seal film. On-Demand wrappers instantly heat up when your staff is in front of the equipment and cycle down when they walk away, saving you energy and earning you a $300 rebate from PSE.
An ENERGY STAR® qualified commercial ice maker can save your business an average of 15 percent on its energy cost without any loss of ice harvesting power.
Some water utilities also offer incentives for qualified, water- and energy-efficient commercial foodservice equipment. Be sure to check with your water provider for any possible additional incentives on commercial ice machines.
Reach In Refrigeration
Washington State Energy Code mandates that ENERGY STAR® reach-in refrigeration be installed in your business. For this reason we are unable to offer rebates for this type of equipment. If you would like to discuss energy efficient walk-in refrigeration technology please visit our commercial retrofit grants page to get in touch with us and learn more about our custom incentive program for this type of project, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Using condensing water heating recovers heat that normally travels up your ﬂue to the air outside, so improving its energy efficiency by 10 percent or more can add up to valuable energy savings.
PSE does not offer customer rebates for efficient water heaters. To take advantage of these energy savings, please contact your local distributor. PSE has partnered with many local distributors to assist in transforming stocking practice in order to make efficient equipment available to you. To take advantage of these savings, please contact your local distributor.
An ENERGY STAR® qualified dishwasher is an average of 40 percent more water- and energy-efficient than a standard model, helping to lower your energy bills and reduce waste. Your utilities are working together to make this rebate available to you. To confirm your eligibility for specific models please contact email@example.com (and have your water heater fuel type handy).
Some water utilities also offer incentives for qualified, water- and energy-efficient commercial kitchen equipment. Be sure to check with your water provider for any possible additional incentives on commercial dishwashers.
