SDG&E offers incentive programs for businesses looking to improve their energy efficiency. In addition to technical advice, the Energy Efficiency Business Rebates Programs have prescriptive and custom rebates for eligible customers, as well as financing to cover the remaining costs.

The Energy Efficiency Business Rebates can help pay for business, industrial and agricultural retrofits for customers that have a monthly electrical demand of at least 4,166 therms. Rebates are available for lighting improvements, refrigeration, natural gas technologies, food service or other improvements. Customers should contact SDG&E regarding eligibility and maximum incentive amounts. More information and program details can be found in the program handbook.

The Energy Efficiency Business Incentives Program offers incentives for improvements that exceed government energy standards for business, industrial and agricultural customers, regardless of size. Funding for conservation improvements is up to 50% of the total project costs and the incentives are based on the amount of direct energy saved. More information about the specific incentive amounts can be found on the program brochure. Engineering Assistance Incentives are also available to SDG&E customers.
