How the Program Works

Review portfolio and conduct a basic energy assessment: The program provides the property owner or designated staff member with a program Technical Assistant (TA) to help the property owner/staff member assess property energy performance, upcoming projects, operation/maintenance issues, high-potential properties and potential upgrade opportunities.
Conduct energy assessment: The TA schedules an in-depth evaluation of building energy systems to identify potential efficiency measures, conducts an analysis to determine potential utility incentives available and works with the customer to select a scope of work that meets both program requirements and owner project goals. The owner completes a rebate reservation request (with help from the TA) and program funds are held for the project. Virtual audits are now available.
Install energy efficiency measures: The customer selects measures to be installed and hires a qualified, licensed contractor of their choice to perform installations. The TA is available to assist the owner throughout this process.
Submit rebate application: The TA performs a final site verification of installed measures and helps the customer submit a rebate claim form for installed energy efficiency product(s), after which the incentive is disbursed.

Energy Efficiency Incentives

SoCalGas and LADWP incentives are available for projects meeting the minimum energy saving levels. Projects must achieve minimum 5% gas savings. If electric savings results in 5% minimum site-wide energy savings, LADWP will provide an incentive per dwelling unit at the property. Higher incentives are available for projects that perform deeper scopes and save more energy.

In conjunction with our energy-efficiency rebate and incentive programs, we're offering qualified customers zero-percent, unsecured loans to finance the purchase and installation of eligible energy-efficiency upgrades. Learn more about financing here.
