Commercial HVAC Optimization Program

Program Summary
Generate more leads and close more business as a participating Optimization Contractor

PG&E’s Commercial HVAC Optimization Program is a market transformation effort administered by PG&E. The intent of the program is to show customers what a thorough predictive maintenance plan can offer them in terms of equipment cost reductions and energy efficiency. The funds provided by this program will allow you to introduce the customer to a new way of maintaining their equipment that, in the long run, actually costs them less than the typical run to fail option chosen by most customers.

The Commercial HVAC Optimization Program is a great deal for you and your customers. Designed to maximize the efficiency of your customers’ existing rooftop units, the program pays incentives directly to you and your customers for participating in a one-year or three-year Optimization Program.
