Anaheim Public Utilities - Small Business Energy & Water Direct Install Program

August 04, 2023


The Small Business Energy Management System Program provides participating customers with free electrical energy use evaluations, retrofit funding, and installation assistance. Anaheim Public Utilities (APU) provides an energy efficiency incentive to its small business customers, generally defined as privately owned and having a monthly peak demand of less than 120 kW. Upon request, Anaheim Public Utilities will conduct a free on-site energy use survey and recommend energy efficient measures and technologies to reduce the energy consumption. APU will assist in replacing old equipment with energy efficient equipment.

The program is designed to meet the needs of small business customers seeking to achieve their energy and water efficiency goals and can help better manage utility costs. Multiple energy and water efficiency measures are included, such as: LED lighting upgrades, lighting controls, refrigeration upgrades, HVAC tune-ups, programmable/smart thermostats, water efficient toilets/urinals, aerators, and many more.

More information may be found at the web site listed above or by calling 714-765-4124 to confirm eligibility or to sign up for a no-cost energy survey by an Anaheim Public Utilities representative.
