If you're one of our existing business customers using 250,000 therms a year or more, you could receive a no-cost, energy-efficiency assessment and evaluation of your complex energy-efficiency projects by engineers who are qualified by the Department of Energy (DOE).
We'll show you how your energy-efficiency projects may qualify for cash payments that could reach up to $1 million per project, and up to $2 million per premise, per year.
We'll make site visits and offer expert analyses about saving energy with virtually any industrial use of natural gas, including:
- Process heating and steam systems
- Natural gas engines
- Air compressors
- Steam turbine drives
We'll make field observations and use software modeling/simulation tools to prepare detailed assessments of your site's existing energy use. We'll also forecast your potential costs and savings. Our tools include:
- Process Heating Assessment and Survey:This identifies energy efficiency opportunities by modeling individual pieces of heating equipment and calculates projected costs and benefits.
- Steam System Assessment: This simulates changes in process steam systems and quantifies potential changes in cost, energy use and emissions. It includes a steam demand savings project, a user-defined fuel model, a boiler stack loss worksheet, a boiler flash steam recovery model and improved steam trap models.

No Up-front Costs
“I saved $22,000 without spending a dime,” said Yusheng Shew, president of Tri J Heat Treating.
The SoCalGas® energy-efficiency assessment identified Tri J’s most efficient furnaces. Using that information, Tri J reorganized its work flow to maximize the use of those furnaces, reducing the company’s gas use by 10 percent.
