The Small Business Energy Management System Program provides participating customers with free electrical energy use evaluations, retrofit funding, and installation assistance. 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:

replacing old T12 fluorescent lights with new T8 lamps, electronic ballasts, and lighting controls, paying 75 percent of the installed cost, up to $5,000, per metered account
replacing out-of-date thermostats with new programmable setback models – up to four per metered account
inspecting and tuning up your air conditioning and refrigeration equipment
