New Construction Incentives and Technical Support

Seattle City Light works collaboratively with new construction design teams to create healthy, high performance buildings with low long-term operating costs. Financial incentives and Energy Analysis Assistance support your efforts and can help build energy efficiency into your project from the beginning.

Our Energy Management Analysts, many of whom are LEED accredited, are here to help you achieve your goals. They will work alongside your team to optimize building systems for both efficiency and high performance.

The City Light team provides financial support for professional engineering services to research and evaluate various building system designs. For all the details, see our Program Manual.
