Save energy and money with Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s customized incentives for business energy efficiency retrofit projects involving the installation of high-efficiency equipment or systems.
Businesses that install energy-saving equipment are rewarded with cash payments, based on the actual annual kWh or therm savings that are achieved.
|2013 Incentives Rates|
|Lighting||$0.05 / kWh||Other||$0.09 / kWh|
|AC&R I||$0.15 / kWh||AC&R II||$0.09 / kWh|
|Natural Gas||$1.00 / therm||All Measures||$100 / Peak KW|
The 2013 program opens January 1st 2013. Applications are accepted until December 31, 2013 or until all of the Utility Administrator's customized incentive funds are committed.
PG&E also offers technology incentives for the installation of equipment or control software that provide Demand Response for Customized Retrofit. Businesses that install and utilize demand response equipment are rewarded with incentives based on the amount of peak load reduction they are able to achieve.
Total incentive payments are based on actual reduction in energy usage. Customers and/or their consultants may sponsor projects under this approach. Be sure to contact PG&E early in the process and before you start your project, so that we can help you identify the appropriate application forms, confirm your eligibility, offer advice on the technical aspects of your application, generally, and walk you through the process.
Use our Statewide Customized Calculation Tool to estimate your potential energy savings financial incentive and to support your application. The 2013 program manual and application for the non residential retrofit are also included with this calculator.
