Driving gas savings in commercial buildings is a common struggle with utilities, especially in regions with temperate climates like Southern California. We at Waypoint Energy know this well, and have found a way to help break through that gas efficiency barrier.
Waypoin Energyt’s flagship Connect Program is an initiative implemented across the U.S. by many utilities to drive energy efficiency in commercial buildings. And for increasing customer participation in gas efficiency incentive programs specifically, Waypoint Energy implements the Connect Program with the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) to drive efficiency savings focused directly at natural gas within the commercial building industry.
This week, Waypoint is presenting on a Brown Bag Webinar about unlocking gas savings in the commercial real estate sector. The webinar is on Thursday June 15th at 10am PT/1pm ET, hosted by the Association of Energy Services Professionals (AESP). Waypoint Manager, Johnathon Fata, will explain how the Connect Program helps SoCalGas drive gas savings with start-to-finish support at no cost to the customer. Key takeaways from the webinar will include:
Learn how to engage commercial real estate (CRE) stakeholders at all levels of management to ensure buy-in and participation throughout the utility program from start to finish
Learn how to ensure the timely adoption of efficiency measures by understanding buildings’ capital budget cycles
Understand how to ease buy-in and implementation by communicating goals and benefits to both CRE stakeholders and utilities in terms and metrics specific to each party.
If your commercial building uses natural gas and is located in Southern California, or if your utility is looking to increase participation in its gas efficiency incentives, read more about the program in a 1-pager here and reach out to Waypoint Energy at firstname.lastname@example.org for next steps on how to get started.
