Cowlitz PUD's Commercial Energy Efficiency Program (CEEP) has helped hundreds of local businesses, school districts, municipalities, and industries to reduce their energy consumption. Since Washington State voters passed I-937 back in 2006, the energy savings from these program participants is used towards meeting I-937 energy saving targets.

In 2014, the PUD provided incentives of over $800,000 with energy savings in excess of 5,000,000 kWh, which is equivalent to powering more than 300 homes for a year.

CEEP provides incentives for the installation of energy efficient lighting, heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) equipment, windows, and appliances. Almost 80% of the projects in 2014 went towards lighting upgrades.

2014 Project Highlight: LED Street Lights for the City of Longview – over 2,000,000 kWh and almost $150,000 per year saved.


Lighting Incentives

Currently we offer incentives to improve inefficient lighting systems. Review our CEEP Lighting Offer for more information and to on how we may help you save money and energy. For a link to currently available per-fixture incentives, click here. A simple agreement between the customer/business and Cowlitz PUD must be signed BEFORE starting on the project in order to qualify for available incentives. In addition, complete and include the spreadsheet tool which is required for each project agreement.

For additional questions on the Lighting Incentives Program, contact Rob Salberg at (360) 501-9555 or Energy Efficiency Services at 360-501-9514.


Custom Commercial Projects

We also offer funding for custom (non-lighting) energy efficiency improvement projects for commercial businesses. For more details on our CEEP "Custom Projects," please review our brochure. A simple agreement between the customer/business and Cowlitz PUD must be signed BEFORE starting on the project in order to qualify for available incentives.
