How to apply

To be eligible for our High Performance Homes incentives:

  1. Work directly with one of the certified home raters. They will model your home to determine its percentage above the Washington State Energy Code. Please note that there is a cost associated with having your home modeled, and that these costs may vary by rater. Contact a home rater from the list below for more details.
  2. Once the home's model has been rated to at least 10% above code, submit the Incentive Application to HPHomes@pse.com. Please also submit a current W-9 for the person who should receive the incentive check (as indicated on the Incentive Application). PSE will review the application, and once approved, send the incentive check to the person indicated on the Incentive Application.

If you have further questions, please contact us at HPHomes@pse.com.
