FUNDING

TEAA helps small businesses, non-profits and government entities save energy and lower their utility bills through Energy Watch programs in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, Lake and Solano counties.


The Energy Watch program is funded by California utility ratepayers and administered by Pacific Gas & Electric under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission through a contract awarded to The Energy Alliance Association.




HOW IT WORKS

Sonoma County Energy Watch (SCEW), Napa County Energy Watch (NCEW), Mendo-Lake Energy Watch (MLEW) and Solano County Energy Watch (SEW) are Local Government Partnerships between Pacific Gas & Electric Company and their respective counties. These programs are implemented by TEAA and funded by California utility customers and administered by PG&E, under the auspices of the California Public Utility Commission.


SUCCESS STORIES

The Energy Watch programs are funded by California utility ratepayers. Take a look at your electricity bill. You may see a line item there for "public purpose programs." These funds are passed back down to ratepayers in the form of programs like this one.

Step 1:  No-Cost, No-Obligation Energy Analysis

What are your goals? Do you want to save money? Upgrade your lighting? Have more efficient refrigeration? Have more efficient HVAC systems?

A TEAA project manager will schedule a no-cost, no-obligation energy analysis and prepare an Energy Cost Savings Recommendation report. This report shows existing and proposed equipment, potential energy savings, PG&E incentive, and project costs.  

Your project manager will work with you to ensure you receive the maximum incentive available. They coordinate your project from start to finish, handling all paperwork and competitive bids.  TEAA can apply the incentive directly to your project, lowering your out-of-pocket cost and eliminating the hassle of obtaining your rebate.

Step 2:  Installation

We work with a network of trusted local contractors and installers to get you the best value for your project. You may also use your own preferred contractor, or install the project yourself.  However the project is installed, we coordinate around your schedule in order to limit disruption at your business.

3.  Completion & Approval

Once your retrofit is complete, your project manager will meet with you and conduct a final walk-through to verify your satisfaction.  TEAA inspects 100% of all projects to ensure complete customer satisfaction.
