SoCal Industrial Businesses – Drastically Improve Your Bottom Line with Cost-Effective Energy Efficiency

Running a successful industrial operation is a challenging, 24/7 juggling act — which means energy efficiency upgrades often seem inconvenient, fall by the wayside and become an afterthought. But smart upgrades can drastically reduce your industrial facility’s energy costs, improve your bottom line, enhance your operations and cement your status as a leader in your sector.

What can feel like a complicated, time-consuming exercise is made simple by the energy solutions experts at Willdan. We drive the entire process from identifying the most cost-effective upgrade opportunities and lining up incentives to project design, management, procurement and implementation all while maintaining product quality and minimizing disruptions to your day-to-day operations.

Smart, Energy-Efficient Solutions, Customized for Your Facility

We understand that energy efficiency upgrades are not one-size-fits-all. Willdan helps you identify the improvements that make the most sense for you and your facility and maximize your ROI.

Southern California Edison (SCE) has contracted with Willdan Energy Solutions to develop, implement and offer the Industrial Energy Efficiency Program to SCE customers. As part of the program, Willdan provides comprehensive consultations, technical expertise, financing options and energy efficiency upgrades.

Best of all, we offer a range of flexible program incentives that help cover project costs.

How it Works: The Energy Efficiency Process Made Simple

We guide you every step of the way — from defining the upgrades that best work for your facility to scheduling, equipment installation and identifying delivered energy savings.

Step 1: Qualify & Assess

The energy solutions experts at Willdan start by verifying that your facility meets the program participation criteria: Are you an SCE customer? Do you pay Public Purpose Program charges on your utility bill? What utility rebates or incentives have you received in the past?

We can walk you through our no-obligation Services Request Form, which allows us to start the verification process and begin collecting utility bill information. Once we’ve pre-qualified your site, we’ll schedule a visit to perform an energy consultation. We’ll review the program assistance that your project would qualify for, including incentives, technical assistance or other benefits that make achieving energy efficiency easier. Willdan or one of our authorized partners will work with you through the process, from defining the project you want to implement to scheduling, installation and delivering energy savings.

Step 2: Apply

We will submit your application to SCE. Once approved, your rebate is reserved.

You’ll sign a Customer-Implementer Agreement that lists the full program terms and conditions. The agreement also provides all program disclosures, including but not limited to estimated kWh savings, enrollment options, measures, the price and the billing cycle. It also authorizes Willdan to submit a Pre-Installation Package for your project to SCE and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for review and approval.

Step 3: Install

After SCE approves the Pre-Installation Package, you can use your own contractor or we can connect you with a Certified Trade Pro to install your selected energy efficiency measures. We can connect you with options tailored to your needs if you need financing. You are under no obligation to use these financing options.

We can also provide technical assistance such as engineering design, equipment selection or commissioning.

Step 4: Verify

Once your upgrades have been installed and commissioned, we’ll conduct a post-installation review to measure, verify and report the amount of energy saved to you, SCE and the CPUC. If you qualified for any of our flexible incentives, we’ll issue those funds once the Post-Installation Package is approved by SCE.

Step 5: Save

After SCE approval, Willdan will issue your rebate check within 30 days. Congratulations! You’ve started saving energy and improved your facilities.
