Who is eligible?

  • Commercial and industrial customers with an average 12-month peak electric demand up to 200 kW
  • For natural gas measures, must be an SCG customer

How does it work?

  1. Willdan works with UI and SCG to confirm eligibility and then schedules a visit to your facility.
  2. During the visit, our energy engineer conducts an energy assessment of your facility at no cost or obligation to you.
  3. UI and SCG reviews and approves the assessment.
  4. Willdan presents the assessment results to you. We will review costs, estimated energy savings, program incentives and financing options for all possible energy-efficiency measures.
  5. You select which measures you wish to have installed and sign an agreement to proceed.

For the free energy audit, work typically begins within 30 days. For your selected energy improvements, you have the option to pay nothing up front. SBEA program incentives will offset a portion of the cost of the eligible measures. Interest-free financing for the balance of the project is available for qualified customers. The financed amount will appear on your monthly electric bill, allowing you to make just one monthly payment for both your SBEA loan and electric bill.
