Make your building project more energy efficient
Design and build more energy-efficient projects. The PG&E Savings By Design (SBD) Program can show you how. The program offers services to building designers and owners in our service area, including business solutions, owner incentives and educational resources.
SBD can help you exceed California's Title 24 energy-efficiency standards. Our engineers can analyze your building's energy design to help it rise above the standard. Visit Savings By Design. Download Savings by Design 2015 Participant Handbook (PDF, 552 KB).
Contact your PG&E business representative to learn more about energy-efficient construction. The program requires you to reach out early in the design process to learn about available funding.
