Energy Efficiency Saves SLO County $600,000 per year (Ind. Report)
San Luis Obispo County
Date: 2018-10-24
In the Golden State, San Luis Obispo (SLO) County officials report the county government's energy efficiency efforts have cut its energy costs by 15 pct for an annual savings of between $600,000 and $700,000 since 2010. The county currently spends about $4.5 million per year on electricity and natural gas.

To reach its energy cost cutting goals, the county partnered with PG&E and San Luis Obispo County's Energy Watch Partnership to use low-interest financing and utility rebates and incentives for a project that included: upgrading incandescent lighting to energy efficient LEDs; heating and cooling systems; energy control systems; and others. Future upgrades include: installation of solar panels; energy storage technologies that help reduce peak-demand energy needs; and upgrading thermostats.
