Agricultural Lighting Upgrade Program

Agricultural Lighting Upgrade Program logo

GHPUD is offering qualified business customers substantial incentives to promote upgrades to energy efficient lighting systems. New lighting technologies can significantly reduce your energy consumption and improve lighting conditions in your workplace.

  • Existing building retrofit options
  • New construction options
  • Quieter operation than many older systems
  • Improved lighting conditions
  • Ongoing energy savings

Incentive Information

Incentives are based on BPA's deemed Lighting Calculator. Incentives cannot exceed 50% of total project cost.
Example incentives:
Convert 60 watt incandescent lamp to 10 watt LED lamp $30/unit
Convert T12 4-lamp fixture 192 watts to T8 HP 2-lamp fixture (57 watts) $50/unit
Convert 250 watt exterior HID light to 100 watt LED lamp/fixture $120/unit
Convert 400 watt high bay HID lighting to T8 HP 6-lamp fixture (220 watts) $200/unit
Convert 400 watt high bay HID lighting to 130 watt high bay LED fixture $300/unit

*PRE-APPROVAL REQUIRED
Steps to Participate
Eligibility
• Must be a commercial-metered business or industrial facility served by Grays Harbor PUD.
• Projects must be submitted on Bonneville Power Administration’s Commercial/Industrial Lighting calculator. Refer to the Northwest Trade Ally Network for Commercial and Industrial Lighting for contractors skilled in lighting retrofit or new construction design.
• Projects are required to obtain a minimum energy savings of 40% reduction in annual kilowatt hours used.
• Measure eligibility is based on the Bonneville Power Administration’s (BPA) list of deemed incentives for lighting retrofits.
• Lighting equipment must be in accordance with BPA and Grays Harbor PUD standards.
• Incentives cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost. Note: Total project cost is a reflection of labor, materials, permits, recycling fees, and other associated costs.
• All hazardous materials associated with the retrofit project must be properly disposed in accordance with federal and state laws.
• Necessary permits for the project must be obtained and proper disposal of hazardous waste is required.
• The production, processing, or sale of marijuana is prohibited by federal law, and federally owned, controlled or administered resources may not be purposefully provided to facilitate the commission of a federal offense. Energy Efficiency incentive funding may not be used for these facilities.
• Request to Pay Customer Rebate to Contractor’ form must be completed prior to project approval. This form authorizes GHPUD to issue a two-party check sent to the customer to sign over to the contractor upon satisfactory completion of the work. Conditions apply.
Steps to Participate
1. Contact Energy services at Grays Harbor PUD for more information and to determine eligibility.
2. Contact a contractor or vendor from the Northwest Trade Ally Network for Commercial and Industrial Lighting for a free lighting audit.
3. Contractor or vendor will submit a project proposal in the form of BPA’s lighting calculator to GHPUD along with all of the associated specifications for the proposed equipment. In some instances PUD staff can assist a building owner in completing the calculator.
4. Pre-approval by Grays Harbor PUD for projects must be obtained prior to material purchase and installation.
5. The customer will receive a project proposal from the contractor containing energy savings, incentives, project payback, return on investment, and total project cost. Note: Project proposals are estimations and may vary.
6. Any agreement for a two party rebate check must be reviewed prior to project approval to make sure accuracy of incentive amounts.
7. Project application must be received by Grays Harbor PUD before materials are ordered and work begins. Application must be received before approval will be granted.
8. Upon project completion the contractor or customer will notify Grays Harbor PUD, and provide all paid invoices and other documentation associated with the project.
9. Grays Harbor PUD will conduct a final inspection of the project to verify the project and compliance with the proposal. The rebate will be processed once the inspection is completed.

Variable Frequency Drive for Pumps, Motors, Compressors, or Fan Systems

Variable Frequency Drive for Pumps, Motors, Compressors, or Fan Systems logo

Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are designed to adjust motor speed to match changing needs by controlling the frequency of the electrical power that’s supplied to your motor. A VFD can provide as much as 20% savings on annual energy costs.

  • A Variable Frequency Drive provides:
  • • Reduced energy consumption
  • • Longer equipment life
  • • Reduced maintenance and repair costs
  • • VFD often save as much as 20% energy use annually

Incentive Information

Rebates are determined based on actual energy savings* up to $0.18/kWh and cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost.

*Energy savings are determined using BPA's Measurement and Verification protocols. M/V Protocol: Before efficiency measure is installed, existing electrical consumption is measured. Based on this measurement and estimated energy savings, an estimated incentive is calculated. During post-installation measurement of efficiency project, energy savings are verified, these verified energy savings will be calculated into the actual incentive for the project.
Steps to Participate
Eligibility
* Rebate application and all necessary supporting documentation will be required before approval.
* Program may require an Energy Efficiency Project Implementation Agreement to be signed to commit the funding for the project. Timeframes are determined in this agreement.
*Incentives are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may be limited based on the availability of funds.

*PRE-APPROVAL IS REQUIRED.

Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) are designed to adjust water pump motor speed to match your changing irrigation needs by controlling the frequency of the electrical power that’s supplied to your motor. A VFD can provide as much as 20% savings on annual energy costs.

  • A Variable Frequency Drive provides:
  • • Greater irrigation control
  • • Reduced energy consumption
  • • Longer equipment life
  • • Reduced maintenance and repair costs
  • • VFD often save as much as 20% energy use annually

Custom Agricultural Projects Program

Custom Agricultural Projects Program logo

To support energy savings in this highly variable sector, GHPUD supports custom energy efficiency projects. Custom projects encompass retrofit, new construction efficiency projects, and energy management specific to the needs of each customer.

The program provides rebates for any project with verifiable electric energy savings, including large projects for agricultural customers. Rebates are determined based on actual energy savings up to $0.18/kWh and cannot exceed 50% of the total project cost.

  • Some examples of projects include:
  • Variable Frequency Drive for Pumps, Fans, Motors & Compressors
  • Shell Measures
  • Controls
