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.
