PG&E to enhance energy efficiency programs
The proposal would allow PG&E to invest $433 million per year for two years to continue energy efficiency programs that would enable customers to realize energy savings equivalent to more than 277 MW of electricity
San Francisco, July 5, 2012 — Pacific Gas and Electric Co. will file with the California Public Utilities Commission a proposed two-year energy efficiency portfolio that, if approved, would enhance the company's programs.
The proposal would allow PG&E to invest $433 million per year — about the same as current levels — for two years to continue energy efficiency programs that would enable customers to realize energy savings equivalent to more than 277 MW of electricity.
PG&E's 2013-2014 portfolio will offer energy efficiency services and technologies to agriculture, industrial, commercial and residential customers through multiple channels in collaboration with local government and third-party partners.
PG&E proposes to continue its work with component manufacturers and retailers to develop, build and make available new, energy-efficient products for customers. In addition, PG&E plans to continue its advocacy of energy efficiency codes and standards, as well as expand education and workforce training opportunities.
PG&E also proposes to continue and expand its local and regional government partnerships in: Monterey Bay Area, City of San Joaquin, East Bay, Fresno County, Kern County, Madera County, Marin County, Mendocino County, Napa County, Redwood Coast, San Joaquin County, San Luis Obispo County, San Mateo County, Santa Barbara County, Sierra Nevada, Sonoma County, Silicon Valley, San Francisco, North Sacramento Valley, Central Valley, Solano County, Yolo County, Kings County and Tulare County.
For more than 30 years, PG&E has built a record of working with customers to deliver both cost and energy savings through energy efficiency. PG&E's energy efficiency programs have earned recognition from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Natural Resources Defense Council, Edison Electric Institute and American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy, among others.
