Current Energy Efficiency Partnering Program ended 12/12/11, check the program website for 2012 updates to the program.

Pasadena Water and Power offers the Energy Efficiency Partnering (EEP) program for its non-residential customers to save energy in facilities. Under the EEP program, any permanently installed energy-saving retrofit project may qualify for a rebate incentive. The more cost-effective and energy-saving the project is, the higher the rebate. For each kWh that the new project saves in comparison to the existing equipment's kWh usage, the customer will receive $0.055 - $0.44 (for a minimum of six months, and up to 36 months). If the project also reduces the coincidental summer or winter peak load by 10 kW or more, the customer will receive an additional incentive for each peak kW that has been reduced (for a maximum of three years). The total standard rebate received may not exceed 50% of the project's cost. The various rebate categories available are: Lighting projects, motors and compressors, chilled water conversion, package HVAC units, central plant, and other. Program applications are located on the web site.

Pasadena Water and Power has added a Pool Pump Rebate Program to its commercial and multi-family customers. The program's minimum efficiency standards must be met. These standards are on a list of qualified pool pumps on the program web site. The Pool Pump Rebate Program is a new rebate offered by PWP. A variety of other rebates for cleaning, HVAC, and food service equipment may be found on the program web site. Contact Utility for further detailed information and see "Energy conservation programs and rebates" on program web site listed above.
