Summary 

Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) offers non-residential customers incentive programs to encourage energy efficiency. More information about the incentive amounts and equipment requirements can be found at the program web site.

The SoCalGas Energy Efficiency Calculated Incentive Program (“EECIP”) provides standardized monetary incentives and non-monetary awards for business energy efficiency projects involving the installation of new, high-efficiency equipment or systems. First, SoCalGas estimates the energy savings and incentive. Incentives are paid based on the quantity of therms saved resulting from the installation of the new equipment or system. The Incentive payment amount is based on a flat incentive rate of $1.00 per therm or 50% of the project cost, whichever is less subject to program caps.

Under this program, the customer will need to follow a multi-step process using forms supplied specifically for this program. The forms are submitted to SoCalGas for review and approval prior to final project design or equipment selection. Additionally, pre- and post inspections may be required. SoCalGas will work closely with the customer to facilitate the review and payment process.

 The Savings By Design Program (SBD) is an energy efficiency program that provides technical and financial resources to help commercial and industrial customers save energy and money when they design, expand, or change new or existing processes and facilities. Incentives equal $0.60 per therm saved annually, up to $500,000 or 50% of incremental cost, whichever is less.
