PG&E wants to spend $433 million in energy efficiency for 2013-2014

One of the largest utilities in the United States, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, wants to invest $433 million per year in energy efficiency programs for their customers.

The utility filed a two-year energy efficiency portfolio with the California Public Utilities Commission for approval. They believe the programs proposed in the portfolio will enable customers to realize energy savings of more than 277 megawatts of electricity and 52 million therms of natural gas.

PG&E's 2013-2014 portfolio will offer energy efficiency services and technologies to agricultural, industrial, commercial and residential customers, through multiple channels in collaboration with the local government and third-party partners.

PG&E also proposes to continue and expand its local and regional government throughout the state.

The utility will also work with component manufacturers and retailers to develop and commercialize energy efficient projects. In addition, they plan to continue their advocacy of energy efficiency codes and standards and expand education and workforce training opportunities.

PG&E is based in San Francisco and delivers energy to around 15 million people in Northern and Central California. The company committed to increasing the energy efficiency of their operations way back in 1976 and has since avoided the release of more than 168 metric tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. – EcoSeed Staff
