More than $10 million in energy-efficiency rebates and incentives are reserved for business customers of Los Angeles-based Southern California Gas Co., also known as The Gas Co. The utility reserved the 2007 amount - the highest level of funding for such programs in its 140-year history - because energy efficiency plays a critical role in meeting the state’s energy needs and helping the environment.

“These rebates and incentives are only the beginning,” said Mark Gaines, Gas Co.’s director of customer programs. “Participating businesses save much more money by using less fuel.”

Among the programs offered are: 
  • $3.3 million in rebates from the Express Efficiency Program, which offers up to $200,000 per customer per year for retrofits on qualifying equipment such as boilers, pipe and tank insulation, steam traps and instantaneous and storage water heaters.
  • $3.4 million in incentives through the Custom Process Improvement and Process Equipment Replacement programs, which offer up to $25,000 per customer, per year, for improving business processes and installing energy-efficient equipment.
  • $1.2 million in incentives from the Energy-Efficiency Grant Program, which provides up to $300,000 per customer, per year, on qualifying large energy-efficient equipment retrofits or process redesigns.
  • $1.1 million in incentives from the Savings By Design program, which improve energy efficiency for customers that design new facilities, expand existing facilities or change business processes.
