It Pays to be Green – Conservation Grant Awarded to Thinkspace
Puget Sound Energy (PSE) has awarded a $13,000 conservation grant to Thinkspace for energy efficient lighting retrofits. Thinkspace’s plan calls for a reduction in energy consumption by approximately 21,106 KWH. Annual energy cost savings are estimated to be a little over two-thousand dollars per year. Our discussions with PSE have been on-going for three months. It is much more difficult to qualify for a grant that I would have thought. In the end I’m glad that it was not handed out so easily as I got to have a much better understanding about what it really takes to save energy. A lot of hard work and analysis by the architect and electrical contractor have made this possible. Read about the first post regarding “Incentives for Going Green“.
