Savings By Design is a statewide program offered by PG&E to encourage high-performance new building design and construction for commercial buildings. The program offers building owners and their design teams a wide range of services, such as Design Assistance, Design Team Incentives, Owner Incentives, and educational resources such as Energy Design Resources
(EDR) and Zero Net Energy
Savings By Design offers these services for customized new construction projects that exceed California's Title 24 energy efficiency standards.
Contact your PG&E account manager early in the design process of your project to identify available funding, receive program information specific to your project needs, and enhance your project's overall energy efficiency potential.
The program, administered by California's four investor-owned utilities under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), offers owners and their design teams a variety of services. For more information about the program, visit the statewide Savings By Design
