Anaheim Public Utilities (APU) provides an energy efficiency incentive to its small business customers, generally defined as privately owned and having a monthly peak demand of less than 50 kW. Upon request, Anaheim Public Utilities will conduct a free on-site energy use survey and recommend energy efficient measures and technologies to reduce the energy consumption. APU will assist in replacing old equipment with energy efficient equipment, including:
