Energy Smart Services: Industrial Customers

Financial Incentives & Technical Assistance for our Industrial Customers

For over 30 years, your Seattle City Light has been helping industrial customers reduce energy use and operating costs to boost their profits and enhance safety. We continue to offer energy conservation incentives and want you to take advantage of our generous program, Energy Smart Services.

We can perform an energy survey, pay for an energy analysis/study, and pay up to 70% of project costs. We have funded many projects, including:

  • Lighting upgrades: T8's, T5's, HIDs, daylighting and occupancy controls.
  • Compressed air system upgrades: new compressors, variable speed drive compressors, additional storage tanks, and cycling refrigerated dryers.
  • Ammonia refrigeration system upgrades: compressor staging control; thermosyphon oil cooling; and variable speed drives (VSDs) on compressors, condensers and evaporators.
  • VSD installations on cooling tower fans, baghouse fans and pumps.
  • Controls: Ventilation fans, industrial process
  • Heat recovery
  • Electric furnace upgrades
  • Galvanizing tank insulation and temperature control
  • Premium efficiency motors

and just about anything else that saves electricity.

Together we will save more energy, keep our rates low, our environment green, and your competitiveness high. Our Energy Management Analysts are ready to meet with you to answer any questions you might have about our program.

We look forward to your participation.
