2018 Business Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

Earn Rebates on Your Improvements

Instant Lighting Rebates Now Available

Instant rebates are available on select lighting product(s), at participating distributors. To receive the rebate, customers must complete a Purchase Acknowledgement Form (should not take more than a couple minutes to complete) which can be downloaded and completed prior to the purchase or at the time of purchase. Make sure you get them now, because the rebates are only good while supplies last. 

  • How to receive your instant lighting rebate
    1. Locate this tag at participating distributors and select the lighting product 
    2. Bring your item to a sales associate who will then provide you with a purchase acknowledgment form that you will need to fill out. If you'd like to fill out the form before heading to purchase your lighting you may download it now.

    3. Receive your instant rebate after you hand the completed form to the sales associate.

    Enhance your customer experience and save money at the same time.

    SDG&E offers rebates on new foodservice equipment such as ice machines, convection ovens and griddles. Please review all steps to make sure that your non-lighting rebates application is processed and not returned back to you because of missing information.

    1. Review the Energy Efficiency Business Rebates Handbook for an overview of policies and procedures.
    2. Browse our new consolidated Product Catalog to find rebate-eligible items:​ Consolidated Product Catalog (pdf)
    3. The following project types require a site inspection be conducted before existing equipment is modified or new equipment is installed:
      1. Projects applying for On-Bill Financing
      2. All products found in the DEER Section
      3. Various other products that are identified in the product catalog
      4. Previous participation (if occurred within last 5 years)
    4. If your project requires a pre-inspection, you must wait for a notice to proceed from SDG&E before any equipment can be modified or installed.

    Submitting your online rebate application (3 steps)

    Step 1: A Trade Professional and/or business customer must complete and submit the appropriate rebate application online. 

    • Projects not requiring pre-inspection: It is recommended that the Trade Professional and/or Business Customer fill out as much information as possible and submit the online application for the processing team at SDG&E to review. Within three business days a notification will be sent on next steps regarding completing the online application.
    • Projects requiring pre-inspection: It is a requirement, for all projects requiring pre-inspection, that the Trade Professional and/or Business Customer complete, and submit, the online application and must wait (up to three business days) for a notice to proceed from SDG&E before any equipment can be modified or installed.

Before you take any steps to reduce your energy use, it’s helpful to build a complete picture about how your facility currently uses energy. Benchmarking provides you with an easy way to assess and monitor your energy use. The EPA’s ENERGY STAR® Portfolio Manager is a tool that helps you identify savings opportunities, verify energy efficiency improvements, and receive EPA recognition for exemplary energy performance.

Once you have created your building portfolio in Portfolio Manager, you can use SDG&E’s no-cost, easy-to-use Automated Benchmarking Service to automatically send your building’s energy use information to the EPA’s ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager.
