“We went to the Energy Innovation Center to look at appliances, it’s important to do that."

“I encourage other businesses to go the Energy Innovation Center so they can see and benefit from what equipment is out there.“

Antonio and Zulema, Bull Chicks Restaurant

My advice to other business owners is to really look at the numbers. We are just saving money, month after month. And SDG&E has been a huge asset for us, and in my book that’s the best complement I can give anyone we’re working with.

Dan Hurd, Eastlake Tavern and Bowl

“SDG&E came and offered to help us save money. They sent a technician to service my equipment… now we save 25%-30% on our (energy) bills.”

Gabriel Camacho, Margaritas Kitchen and San Diego Burger Co.

“The only way you can compete with the ‘big guys’ is to differentiate yourself… (so we) made ourselves more energy efficient and increased the guest experience.”

Pie Roque, El Primero Hotel

“…I’ve got a huge walk-in (fridge) that never sleeps, a (ventilation) hood that’s on for 15 hours a day. There’s a lot of energy going in and out of this place. People from SDG&E would come on out (and provide services to help us save).”

Ian Black, Tornado Restaurant

Lawrance Furniture replaced more than 400 halogen bulbs with energy-efficient LEDs. “The old bulbs were so hot we didn’t even realize that we never ran our heat in the winter.”

SDG&E rebates covered up to 25% of the cost of the new bulbs and On-Bill Financing helped Lawrance pay for the cost with a 0% loan on their monthly bill.

“The new bulbs should last 10 years,” Haimsohn said, “meaning we’re saving a ton of money and can spend a lot less time on ladders changing out bulbs.”

Howard Haimsohn, Lawrance Furniture
