The Seattle 2030 District Utility Incentives Matrix
Seattle building owners are fortunate to have a wide array of incentives from major utilities available for energy and water-saving projects. Keeping track of these incentives and their applicability is a complex task. As a service to our members, The Seattle 2030 District has assembled this Utility Incentive Matrix, covering available incentives and resources from the following utilities:
- Puget Sound Energy
- Seattle City Light
- Seattle Public Utilities
- Seattle Steam
As a member of the Seattle 2030 District you get greater access to Commute Seattle services, which can help support worksite sustainability initiatives, promote worksite amenities and services, reduce your drive-alone rate and earn LEED points, and comply with Transportation Management Plan (TMP) and Commute Trip Reduction (CTR) regulations. Whatever your motivator, Commute Seattle can make it easy.
You also gain access to the Property Toolkit - Commute Solutions for Downtown Seattle Commercial Property Managers, providing a one-stop resource for sustainable transportation products, services, and incentives in Downtown Seattle.
Best of all, as a member of the Seattle 2030 District, Commute Seattle will come to your building to do a basic transportation survey to help downtown property owners evaluate a buildings’ performance in a number of transportation “mode split” categories and provides recommendations on how to improve performance and prioritize commute trip reduction efforts.
