SF Environment was pleased to celebrate their hard work and contribution to the SF Energy Watch program, a public-private partnership between the City of San Francisco and Pacific Gas and Electric Company that offers financial incentives for energy efficiency upgrades to commercial and multifamily property owners. Thanks to their labor, the program has completed almost 300 energy efficiency projects and has paid almost $1 million dollars in incentives so far this year.
“We are on track to achieve 93% of the program’s kW goals for the year, and we appreciate the particularly hard work you are doing to meet our early deadlines in November so that SF Energy Watch can continue to be a robust program in the next program cycle” said Debbie Raphael, Director of SF Environment.
SF Energy Watch is designed to make energy efficiency easier and more affordable, create jobs and stimulate the local economy. The work of participating contractors and vendors is instrumental to achieve the program’s energy saving goals so incentives continue to be offered. Their services also help fight climate change. More efficient equipment installed in San Francisco means fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Working together San Francisco becomes a better, cleaner and more sustainable place to live and work.
San Francisco is habitat for 800,000 people – meeting needs for space to work, play, and learn; for food, water, and air; for community with local flora and fauna. SF Environment provides support for urban agriculture and forestry and green buildings, helping residents and businesses harness environmental opportunities.
