Update to Wash. State's Renewable Energy Incentive Program

Because of the high level of interest in the Renewable Energy System Incentive Program in the City of Ellensburg’s service territory, the availability of incentive funds for renewable energy systems is virtually exhausted. The WSU Energy Program, the entity that is hired by Washington State to manage the incentive program, will process only those applications for projects in the City of Ellensburg’s service territory that were submitted on or before Friday, July 6, 2018.


The annual cap for the program in the City of Ellensburg’s service territory is $250,000. The WSU Energy Program cannot approve applications in one year that will cause the cap to be exceeded in a subsequent year. Program staff will review incentive payment obligations each fiscal year to determine if any additional funds are available.


 Applications submitted after Friday, July 6, 2018, will be queued in a “suspended – pending funding” status. If funding becomes available, program staff will process applications based on their date of submission to the WSU Energy Program.
