PG&E’s Energy Watch Partnerships create a close-working relationship with local governments to help them develop and implement energy management plans so that they can achieve objectives related to sustainability and climate change. PG&E provides incentives, tools and technical assistance that support and empower our partners in their efforts. Not only does Energy Watch help reduce costs, it also demonstrates to constituents and communities a strong commitment to energy efficiency.
Energy Watch Partnerships provide centralized access to PG&E’s wide array of energy efficiency programs serving single- and multi-family residents and small businesses. Most partnerships work directly with the community to provide energy analyses to residential and small business customers. Qualifying customers may also receive the installation of energy-efficient equipment.
In an effort to provide greater service to residential customers, PG&E’s Low Income Energy Efficiency (LIEE)
and Energy Watch programs are developing a pilot program to provide energy efficiency equipment to moderate-income residents. The pilot program will be introduced with select Energy Watch Partnerships and expanded to additional partnerships over the coming year.
Partnerships also provide energy workshops and classes designed specifically for local residents and businesses. Through these free training opportunities, customers can learn new ways to reduce their energy bills and become more energy-efficient.
By partnering with PG&E, organizations demonstrate their commitment to producing measurable results. Local agencies that lead by example can also motivate their communities to act. Additionally, many Energy Watch Partnerships strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, increase renewable energy usage and protect air quality, while creating jobs and a more sustainable community.
