Our new grocery incentive program, CoolSave, helps medium to large grocery stores implement energy-saving projects which boost the bottom line and have a big impact for stores operating on razor thin profit margins. CoolSave is open to eligible PG&E customers and offers free consulting services, helpful tools, and generous incentives to achieve energy savings through energy efficiency. A unique program in Northern California, the CoolSave team of trusted experts from kW Engineering and 2050 Partners help you through the process to increase store profitability and sustainability.
How much can you save?
Our goal is to help grocery customers save 10% or more on their electricity bills – equivalent to a $1 million sales boost for a typical 50,000 sf supermarket. To do that, we take a comprehensive approach, to energy efficiency opportunities in your store and provide a powerful combination of free services, including:
- Project Scoping / Analysis
- Technical Assistance
- Demand Response Integration
- Financing Support
- Remote Monitoring
- Remote Fault Detection
OpEx and CapEx incentives
We also offer two incentive paths:
- OpEx – $2,000 to implement quick controls retrofits. Along with our free evaluation of your store, this can often unlock major energy savings without the need for upfront capital.
- CapEx – $0.12/kWh for capital projects. Unlike most incentive programs, we account for all energy savings resulting from the project, from refrigeration equipment to salesfloor lighting. This makes CoolSave particularly valuable for comprehensive projects.
Are you eligible?
Customers who have the following are eligible to participate in the CoolSave program:
- PG&E electric meter
- Grocery / Supermarket / Big Box with refrigeration (buildings over 20,000 square feet)
- Electricity meters capturing whole building interval data. It sounds fancy, but it’s not. Many PG&E meters already do this. If you’re unsure, we can check.
