Would Your Business Enjoy Lower Energy Bills?

(Source: San Diego Gas & Electric) - Higher summer temperatures can mean higher energy bills and cause an extraordinary strain on the electrical grid. This can lead to a greater risk of grid emergencies and power outages. But it doesn't have to be this way.

During a grid emergency, businesses in SDG&E's service territory can participate in the Emergency Load Reduction Program (ELRP). By joining ELRP, businesses help support the grid when it's facing extra strain and can get a bill credit for their participation. ELRP is a flexible way to get incentives for using less energy.
