Improve the efficiency of your hotel or motel
PSE recognizes that hotels are a tough business and that our hotel owners and operators are often on deck for every task under the sun. This leaves you stretched thin and often too busy to look into potential ways to reduce your utility bill or save energy. That’s why we have created the Small- to Mid-size Lodging Efficiency Program!
For hotel owners and operators with 150 rooms or less, this program provides a comprehensive and free energy assessment of your facility. Where identified, we will even install proven energy-saving products including lighting, water heating and HVAC. Many of them even come at no cost to you! In addition, the Small- to Mid-size Lodging Efficiency Program can help increase your facility’s efficiency by coordinating with other PSE-funded programs to create a more comprehensive list of energy-saving actions you can take.
Let PSE kick off your energy saving journey with us by scheduling a free energy assessment today!
What you get
Once scheduled, PSE will send a small business energy specialist out to your location to do a comprehensive energy assessment of the facility. They will be looking for ways to directly improve your business and increase energy savings. They may identify simple upgrade options including:
- LED lighting: Fixture upgrades, exterior lighting, exit and open signs.
- Occupancy sensors: Sensor controls that turn off lighting when a space is unoccupied.
- Water savers: Low-flow faucet aerators and pre-rinse spray heads.
When your energy specialist is done, they will provide you with:
- The results of your energy assessment, including energy savings project identification, savings calculations and return-on-investment.
- Installation (or will work to schedule installation) of any no-cost LED lighting and water-saving opportunities identified, where eligible.
- A proposal including additional energy efficiency upgrade opportunities that may require financial investment, where eligible.
Finally, as the owner and operator of the facility you will end up with reduced energy use and savings on your utility bill and an improved environment for your guests and employees.
Energy Assessment for 150 room facility or less
How you qualify
To be eligible for PSE's Small- to Mid-size Lodging Efficiency Program:
- You must be a current PSE commercial electric*, natural gas, or dual fuel* (using both) customer in the hospitality/lodging industry. This may also include:
- Boarding/rooming houses, apartment hotels, dormitory, and shelter facilities.
- Residential care building types which, for the purposes of this rebate includes: nursing homes, retirement home, and assisted living.
- You must have no more than 150 rooms at your facility.
- New Construction projects are not eligible for this rebate.
*PSE electric customers have the greatest energy saving potential in this program, as the natural gas opportunities within it are naturally smaller. Customers in Snohomish County can take advantage of this program’s offerings for both of their fuel types due to a partnership between PSE and Snohomish County PUD.
