Additional Rebates: Appliances, Smart Thermostats, & Lighting

The PUD administers a rebate program for customers who install electrically efficient measures such as heat pumps, weatherization, appliances and lighting with funds provided by Bonneville Power Administration (BPA). BPA determines what measures result in actual energy savings and what they will pay for a rebate.  Rebate measures increase, decrease and sometimes completely expire based on the state of the market or other new information based on their analysis.

Smart Thermostat Rebate Program

For the average American household, almost half the annual energy bill goes to heating and cooling – more than $900 a year. Being smart about how you control your temperature settings will help you save money and stay comfortable in your home. A smart thermostat is a wi-fi enabled device that automatically adjusts heating and cooling temperature settings for optimal performance. Energy savings and project costs will vary. Program requirements:
  • Thermostat must be listed on BPA’s Qualified Products List
  • Device can be installed by you or an HVAC contractor ($100 for self-install, $125 if done by professional)
  • Device must be installed in homes where the primary heating system is either an electric forced air furnace or a central heat pump.

Lighting Efficiency Program

ENERGY STAR® LED (light-emitting diode) is a highly energy efficient lighting technology. This technology uses at least 75% less energy – and last 25 times longer – than traditional incandescent lighting. Switching to ENERGY STAR® LED bulbs is an easy, low-cost upgrade that can help you save money every month – savings that add up over the lifetime of the bulb.

Residential lighting rebates are available at stores participating in the “Simple Steps, Simple Results” program – a point of sale instant rebate program. By verifying the customer’s zip code, the store bills the rebate to the utility.

Recycle Your Old CFLs: Washington State residents can recycle mercury-containing lights at no charge, by dropping them off at authorized collection sites throughout the state. Learn more at LightRecycle Washington.
