Permanent Load Shifting Delivers Savings You Can Count On

Earn an incentive to help offset the initial investment in a mature thermal energy storage system. By storing energy that your system produces when energy costs are lower (off-peak), and then distributing that stored, cooled air during on-peak periods, you save money on your bill.

SDG&E’s Permanent Load Shifting program requires you to shift energy use for cooling during the summer peak hours to off-peak hours. These incentives are open to all SDG&E customers.

To be eligible, you must:

  • Be on a Time-of-Use (TOU) rate

  • Have an SDG&E smart meter or an approved interval meter

How to Apply

  • Review the program handbook, which explains additional requirements as well as how we calculate incentives.

  • Complete the Permanent Load Shifting application.
