Today, one of the key components of a successful business is sustainability. Managing your energy needs efficiently can help your company save money while also reducing its carbon footprint, something that benefits everyone.
Fortunately, SDG&E is serious about helping businesses find ways to be more sustainable, manage their energy use and save money. Which is why they are hosting their annual Energy Showcase, a one-stop-shop where business customers can learn more about how to save energy and money through energy efficiency, demand response and emerging technology.
Taking place at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina on Tuesday, May 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., the event will feature 75 local, national and international exhibitors all highlighting the latest innovations in efficient lighting, solar power systems and electric vehicles.
In addition to being a resource for technology and equipment, the event is designed to make it simple for businesses to understand all of their energy-saving options. Which is why the SDG&E team will be there to answer questions and give hands-on-help on how to go green. Attendees can also get a closer look at how some of the most sustainable businesses in San Diego are saving energy and money. Case studies and information will be available highlighting businesses in San Diego that took on sustainability projects in partnership with SDG&E, and implemented new programs, processes and equipment to manage use and save energy.
An exciting new addition to the Expo this year is the participation of energy-efficiency trade professionals who work with businesses to help them analyze and understand their energy use and determine the best energy saving solutions for their operations. These trade professionals help business customers every step of the way, including evaluating which solutions have the greatest savings and impact, completing applications for financial incentives, and putting a plan into action in a time frame and budget that works for that businesses’ bottom line.
And don't forget to make an appointment at the Energy Solutions Center, where an SDG&E Energy Advisor will provide business customers with expert help. It’s an opportunity to learn about financial incentives including taking advantage of the latest rebates and discounts, the best billing options and personalized tools and technology needed for smart energy management. To make the most of the Energy Solutions Center, customers are encouraged to sign up for My Account in advance and bring their account number with them the day of the event.
