Energy Retrofits

In managing your properties it is very important to keep up on the myriad of energy savings programs available. They might be from any of your utility providers including;  DWP, So Cal Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, and any municipal utility provider. Most programs have a specific time frame, item (lights, water) and dollar amount related to them. It is easy to find your utilities’ web sites and all the information will be posted there. Many will provide you a regular update and notice to your respective emails. These programs not only benefit the environment, but also add to the efficiency and effectiveness of utility use and bottom line dollars to owner possibly through their professional residential or commercial managers.
