PUD offers deals on efficient lighting for businesses
Snohomish County PUD now offers even better rebates for exterior lighting for businesses. Rebates are available for 17 types of efficient outdoor lights, including for security lighting, parking lots and streetlights.
To receive an additional 15 percent rebate on exterior lighting, simply complete a qualifying lighting project by Nov. 29, 2013.
Efficient lighting not only reduces your energy bill, but since the lights last longer, you’ll also save time and money on maintenance costs.
The new rebates cover a variety of outdoor lighting applications. For example, switch a 400-watt parking lot light to an LED light (159 watts or less) and receive a $381 rebate if you qualify for the bonus.
You’ll reduce the light’s energy use by more than half and reduce your PUD bill.

The utility also provides rebates and custom lighting incentives for many other types of business projects.
Businesses can save up to 30 percent on lighting costs by switching to thinner, lower-wattage T5 and T8 fluorescent tube lights.
By changing out older incandescent lights to LEDs and compact fluorescent lights, businesses can save up to 90 percent on lighting costs.
“We’ve been very pleased with our new lighting and how much our electric bill has come down,” said Judy Matheson at J. Matheson Gifts, Kitchen & Gourmet.
