SDG&E has selected Synergy Companies to implement this program.

The BES program is currently available to public K-12 schools. Customers must also pay the Public Purpose Program (PPP) surcharge in order to be eligible.

Our program contractor offers flexible scheduling and strives to minimize disruptions. We would like to provide process and timing, but the factors vary in each situation (for example availability, number of measures to be inspected, building size, etc.).  Therefore, we will provide you with the key steps of the process:


Our contractor will work with you to schedule a no-cost energy audit at a time that works best for you.  The duration of the no-cost energy checkup depends on several factors like size of the building and equipment to be inspected. Upon completion, our contractor will meet with you to discuss their findings and set up the next steps.


The process and timing for this depend on the number of agreed-upon upgrades and your availability. Our first priorities are safety and quality of work, but please know that our contractors aim to be as efficient as possible and minimize disruptions to your business.

Post Installation

Our contractor will conduct a post-installation walk-through to make sure that everything was completed to your satisfaction.
