SF Energy Watch Achievements
Milestones of Success
The City and County of San Francisco's Department of Environment has joined with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to deliver energy-efficiency services and incentives to qualifying commercial customers and multifamily building owners.
Since 2006, SF Energy Watch has saved about 5,500 San Francisco commercial and multifamily properties an average of $4,600 in annual utility bills. The program has paid over $17.5 million in incentives for energy efficiency upgrades. And through the actions taken by customers following their energy audit, this program has also reduced the City’s carbon emissions by over 52,000 tons. That’s the equivalent of taking over 8,300 automobiles off the road or powering almost 24,000 San Francisco residences. SF Energy Watch has been successful not only in delivering energy savings, but also by continuing to create or sustain Bay Area green collar jobs.
