Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) offers rebates and other incentives to businesses and non-residential customers to increase their energy efficiency. In addition to covering equipment and other energy efficient improvements, PG&E offers incentives for efficient building design.
The Standard Energy Efficiency Rebate Program covers a variety of specified improvements, including:
- Agricultural Improvements
- Appliances and General Improvements
- Boilers and Water Heaters
- Business Computing
- Food Service Improvements
- Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Improvements
The Customized Retrofit Incentives Program is a calculated incentive program that provides incentives for custom retrofit improvements that are not covered under the standard rebate program. After a project proposal is reviewed and approved by PG&E, funding is appropriated in order for the project to be implemented. Incentives based on actual reduction in energy use.
The Savings By Design (SBD) offers rebates for technical assistance and design when building energy efficient facilities. A design team can receive up to $50,000 for energy efficient design, while an owner can receive up to $500,000 per facility.
In addition to these rebate programs, PG&E offers a number of demand response programs for its non-residential customers. Customers receive financial incentives for agreeing to curtail energy usage during certain peak periods.
More information about all these programs and information about technical assistance through PG&E can be found at the program web site above.
