SoCalGas - Custom Non-Residential Energy Efficiency Program

August 11, 2023


Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) offers non-residential customers a custom incentive program to encourage energy efficiency. More information about the incentive amounts and equipment requirements can be found at the program web site.

The SoCalGas Energy Efficiency Rebates for Business (EERB) program provides rebates on qualifying energy-efficient natural gas equipment and
improvements for your business needs. First, SoCalGas estimates the energy savings and incentive. Incentives are paid based on the quantity of therms saved resulting from the installation of the new equipment or system. In conjunction with the 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. See website for details.

Under EERB, the customer will need to follow a multi-step process using forms supplied specifically for this program. The forms are submitted to SoCalGas for review and approval prior to final project design or equipment selection. Additionally, pre- and post inspections may be required. SoCalGas will work closely with the customer to facilitate the review and payment process.
