Small Business

Yolo Energy Watch helps small and medium businesses take advantage of existing energy efficiency measures. The core incentive program is called "Energy Fitness," which is a no-cost/low-cost* installation of energy efficient lighting and other measures. You start saving money on your energy bill immediately. How is Energy Fitness offered free?

Here's how the Energy Fitness program works:

2. A technician visits your business to conduct a free, no-obligation energy assessment to determine your potential savings.
3. An installation team makes an appointment to install the energy efficient measures that make sense for your business.

* Businesses other than nonprofits or corporations may receive an IRS 1099 if the improvements exceed $600 in value.

Free Energy Fitness measures include:
  • Fluorescent lighting
  • T8 and T5 lighting 
  • Fluorescent hardwired fixtures
  • Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs)
  • LED exit signs
  • Vending machine controllers
  • Window film
  • HVAC condenser coil cleaning
  • Faucet aerators
  • Low flow shower heads
Measures with a small co-pay include:
  • 4-foot (2-lamp) T12 conversion to 4-foot (2-lamp) T8 ($11)
  • High bay fixture replacement ($50)
