for
Seattle City Light Instant Discount at Retail

The City of Seattle, Seattle City Light Department (“SCL”), seeks a Consultant to manage Instant Discount at Retail program, which will provide a retail markdown on energy efficiency products at retail locations throughout City Light service territory. A primary goal of this program is to drive consistency between offerings by regional utilities to improve customer experience and reduce customer confusion. The retail markdown mechanism for this program will, from the utility customers’ perspective, mirror the method used to implement recent successful retail markdown programs products such as Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting and efficient showerheads. The initial contract will be for two years with an annual option to renew.


Background
Seattle City Light estimates that the overhead cost of running the program, including all field work, incentive processing and subcontractor costs, will be approximately $50,000 per year with incentives being an additional amount estimated at $100,00, for a combined total of $150,000 per year. Seattle City Light currently processes rebates for about 75 heat pump water heaters per year. Through this instant discount program, we anticipate that we might improve uptake and be able to count 150 units per year, with the hope of expanding that number in the years ahead.
