Comprehensive Small Industrial

Earn incentives for small industrial retrofits

Our Comprehensive Small Industrial (CSI) program offers smaller industrial customers the opportunity to expand energy savings beyond a typical equipment retrofit. In addition to incentives for energy-efficient equipment upgrades, CSI offers further incentives for additional energy-saving changes. Your entire grant can cover up to 70% of eligible project costs.

What you get

Our CSI grants apply to non-lighting equipment retrofits. If you qualify for a CSI grant, you’ll receive:

  • A site visit to identify additional savings opportunities (low- and no-cost operational changes) that can be bundled with your equipment upgrade to boost the potential incentive.
  • An incentive for your small industrial retrofit project, including incentives for the equipment upgrade and any additional changes that yield energy savings. The total incentive can cover up to 70% of eligible project costs, which include equipment and installation. Current incentive rates are listed below.
CSI grant
ElectricUp to $0.45 per kWh saved
Natural gasUp to $7 per therm saved
rebates  Up to 70% of eligible project costs

Incentive amount is based on projected annual energy savings.

How you qualify

To be eligible for a CSI grant:

  • You must currently be a PSE business electric or gas customer.
  • Your business site must be considered industrial, which often (but not always) means either: the majority of its electric load is associated with processing or manufacturing; or, its subsystems maintain long run-hours, rely on industry-standard technology, and keep relatively stable control set points and loads.
  • Sites whose principal use is office or retail are almost always not eligible for this program.
  • Your business site must use less than 1,000,000 kWh of electricity per year and less than 50,000 therms of gas per year.
  • You must be pre-approved by PSE prior to the installation of all energy-efficiency improvement measures.
