Pay for Performance for Large Commercial Customers


Seattle City Light launched a new Pay for Performance Program in 2018 to commercial customers. The program uses a unique M and V approach to measure energy savings over a 3 or 5 year period of performance. Two of the largest projects will be described along with early results. The program will greatly move Seattle buildings to become more energy efficient with easily verified savings.
