Industrial Custom Capital Grants

Earn incentives for industrial capital improvements

Our Industrial Custom Capital Grants program offers incentives for energy-efficient upgrades in industrial facilities. If you’re planning a capital project for your industrial site that demonstrates energy savings and is cost-effective, PSE may be able to help pay for it with a custom capital grant.

Common measures incentivized through this program include compressed air and vacuum systems; industrial refrigeration systems; VFD; dust-collection systems; controls; process heating and cooling systems; pumping systems; and manufacturing process improvement.

Get started

What you get

The Industrial Custom Capital Grants program pays electric and gas incentives, which can cover up to 70% of the total cost of equipment and installation. Incentives are for qualifying upgrades only, and current rates are listed below.

Custom capital incentives
Electric $0.45 per kWh saved
Natural gas $7 per therm saved
Rebate Up to 70% of eligible project costs

PSE engineers are here to help. Get in touch with us early in the upgrade process so that we can let you know if your project qualifies, and then we’ll help you maximize your energy efficiency and custom capital grant.

How you qualify

To be eligible for the Industrial Custom Capital Grants program:

  • You must currently be a PSE business electric or gas customer.
  • You must be pre-approved by PSE prior to the installation of all energy-efficiency improvement measures.
  • Projects must be cost-effective to receive a grant.

PSE no longer offers direct customer incentives for the replacement of large commercial HVAC and commercial natural gas domestic water-heating equipment. We’ve moved our efforts to education and market transformation within the supply chain. We work directly with distributors to make sure high-efficiency equipment is available locally when you need it. Equipment not eligible for industrial custom capital grants include: air-cooled air conditioners; water-cooled and evaporative-cooled air conditions; air-cooled heat pumps (greater than 5.4 tons); water-cooled heat pumps; condensing storage and tankless domestic water heaters; and condensing domestic hot water boilers.

How you apply

To get pre-approved for a custom capital grant:

  • Complete the custom retrofit grant application. If you need assistance completing the application, please contact us at industrialem@pse.com.
  • Please include any additional information that would help evaluate the project. This may include a project cost proposal, drawings, trend data and proposed equipment cut sheets.
  • Email your completed application and supporting documents to industrialem@pse.com.
