Energy Audits for Businesses
In partnership with San Mateo County Energy Watch a citywide campaign to provide free energy audits to local businesses launched in spring 2015.
What businesses are targeted for the free energy audits?
- Convenience stores
- Gas stations
- Small retail
Often these audits will recommend changes in lighting and refrigeration with an average investment of $5,000-6,000. With the reduced energy costs, a business can experience a pay-back within 18-24 months. Some businesses may qualify for PG&E rebates and 0 percent financing ($5,000-$100,000 payable over five years).
How does Energy Watch audits work?
- A technician conducts a free energy survey to determine your potential savings.
- An easy-to-understand free report highlighting energy and money saving upgrades will be provided to you.
- Once the go-ahead is given, Energy Watch handles the installation process and rebate paperwork.
- Your business starts saving on the energy bill immediately, freeing up resources.
How is Energy Watch funded?
San Mateo County Energy Watch is a local government partnership between the City and County Association of Governments of San Mateo County (C/CAG) and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and is administered by PG&E through the California Public Utilities Commission.
