Landlords who own rental properties served by the company in the state of Washington where the tenant is billed on rate schedules 16, 17, 18, and 19 also qualify for this program. You can locate your rate schedule on your bill or by calling 1-888-221-7070. Incentive checks are only issued in the name of the Pacific Power account holder.

    Pre-Qualification:

    Step 1 – Multifamily Pre-Qualification:

    • Property managers, owners, or trade allies must submit a pre-qualification form before starting work. This form can be requested from and submitted to [email protected]. Once submitted, the property will be considered pre-qualified only if the requested property is on a qualifying residential rate schedule, and the requested incentive(s) have not been paid previously at the property. Information provided on the pre-qualification form is also used to schedule a pre-inspection; property managers, owners, or trade allies should provide the proper contact information for an inspector to gain access to the property and individual units as necessary.

    Step 2 – Multifamily Pre-Inspection:

    • Wattsmart Homes will schedule a pre-inspection and ensure the property qualifies based on the site conditions. The property manager, owner, or trade ally will be given approval to proceed with work, if qualified.

    Step 3 – Multifamily Post-Inspection:

    • Upon completion of work, please submit application materials to [email protected]. If the application materials are complete, the program will schedule a post-inspection to ensure all work meets HES requirements. Note that applications for projects that do not complete steps 1 and/or 2 will not be accepted.

    Contractor completes energy upgrades:

    • The contractor will perform the necessary work for the project to qualify for an incentive. Consult with your contractor to get a clear understanding of the work being performed and how long it will take. Also, remember to notify your tenants about the work being done.

    Application is submitted:

    • Once the work is completed, the contractor submits one incentive application for the entire multifamily property to the Wattsmart Homes program.
    • All units listed on the application must be verified on the landlord account (units may need to be added if they are not under the landlord account at the time of review).
    • One itemized invoice detailing the work performed for the property must be submitted.
    • A complete W-9 form for the person or entity receiving the incentive check must be submitted along with the application for tax purposes. For changes to account name, contact Business Solutions at 1-866-870-3419.
    • In some cases, a Third Party Payment Addendum will be required if a landlord account is not set up or if the payment is going to anyone other than the account holder
    • Applications cannot be processed if any required documentation is missing.
    • The property is then queued for a post-work inspection.

    Post-work inspection:

    • After receipt of a completed incentive application, the program will schedule a post-work inspection to verify all program requirements have been met.
    • A minimum of 25 percent of the units that received an energy efficiency upgrade must be inspected
    • Tenants should be notified of this post-work inspection beforehand.

    Application is processed and check is mailed:

    • Checks will be issued for approved applications within six weeks of final processing.
