Save with New Construction

The best time to discuss energy-efficient equipment and systems for your new commercial or industrial construction project is during the design and planning stage. Doing so can help lower your upfront costs while reducing your long-term utility bills and energy use .

To take full advantage of all available rebates and incentives, include Tacoma Power in your building design process as early as possible. Our programs can help pay for a variety of energy-efficient enhancements. We can also help identity and prioritize other efficiency opportunities for even greater savings.

Eligible rebates include:

Equipment Rebates

  • Air-conditioning equipment
  • Heat pumps

Custom Incentives

  • Lighting fixtures, lamps and controls
  • Mechanical systems such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning
  • Building shell insulation and glazing

Our new construction incentive is 20 cents per kilowatt hour saved in the first year, up to 100% of the incremental cost of the efficiency improvements.

Design Team Incentives

We may also provide additional cash incentives for building designers and owners whose efficiency projects save 25% or more beyond the Washington State Energy Code. To qualify, projects must be at least 30,000 square feet, and you must provide an energy analysis projecting efficiency results.

Rebate Eligibility Details

  • Must be new commercial or industrial construction within Tacoma Power’s service territory.
  • Efficiency improvements must result in energy performance at least 10% more than achieved when building to Washington State’s Energy Code.
