Energy Efficiency Incentive Program


The Port of Seattle Aviation Utilities Group offers Energy Efficiency incentive (EEI) funding for projects undertaken at airport facilities. These funds are intended as an incentive for the use of energy efficient designs and equipment which exceed minimum building code requirements.

The amount of energy efficiency incentive funding for which a project may qualify depends on the energy measures implemented and the available funding.  The Aviation Utilities Group reviews projects to identify qualifying energy efficiency measures and offers recommendations for energy efficiency that the project may want to consider.

The project proposal application is the first step in awarding EEI funds to a project. The key is to identify energy saving opportunities on a project.
