A guide to retro-commisioning (RCx) incentives provided through the state’s investor-owned utilities during 2013-2014 under the auspices of the CPUC is available: 2013-14 Statewide Retrocommissioning Policy & Procedures Manual.
The 2013-14 Statewide Retrocommissioning (RCx) Offering provides financial incentives for energy savings resulting from permanent and/or automated operational improvement of equipment or systems. Qualifying non-residential customers that make permanent operation changes are eligible for energy efficiency incentives based on calculated energy savings and permanent peak demand reduction. Incentives for gas-related energy savings are eligible only in Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Southern California Gas Company, and San Diego Gas & Electric natural gas service territories.
Incentives are paid on the energy savings and permanent peak demand reduction over baseline energy performance, which in some cases include state-mandated codes, federal-mandated codes, industry-accepted performance standards, or other baseline energy performance standards as determined by the Utility Administrator.
