Puget Sound Energy is offering incentives for building above existing energy codes. As time passes, more stringent codes are inevitable. PSE will pay you an incentive to build above code now. If you are already building or considering doing a Built Green® project, don’t leave this money on the table!

Work directly with their list of certified home raters—most of whom are Built Green verifiers—to receive your incentive. As part of PSE’s Contractor Alliance Network, these raters are pre-screened, licensed, bonded, and insured, and can guide you through the program participation process.

To get started, visit pse.com/hphomes, contact an approved rater/verifier, or email HPHomes@pse.com. For further information on this or other energy efficiency programs offered at PSE, call an Energy Advisor at 1.800.562.1482, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
