As part of this new model, PG&E will be the Portfolio Administrator and establish a new rolling portfolio of EE programs extending through 2022. The scope of these solicitations will cover procurement of programs serving all existing and future PG&E customer sectors and markets.


PG&E developed an EE Business Plan to help navigate this period of transition. The EE Business Plan outlines our approach and strategy to deliver on EE goals through 2025.

"Integration of Demand Response Controls into Energy Efficient Retrofits Webinar"


On June 3rd, the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) hosted a webinar sharing concepts and finding that are reflected in the Energy Efficiency Business Plan Decision (D.18-05-041) Section 2.4.2, regarding the integration of demand response controls into energy efficiency retrofits. This decision is called for third-party approaches to a limited integration of demand response (DR) lighting and HVAC controls in small, medium, and large commercial buildings, as well as DR for HVAC controls in residences, the latter specifically to support the residential transition to time-of-use rates. The decision dedication some $23 million per year statewide to support these DR control integration efforts. The presentation of this event along with the recording of the event is available below.
