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.

The contract to make uninterrupted-energy-supply (UES) battery systems capable of storing and discharging up to 1.078 MWof solar energy was awarded to iDemand by SunFusion Solar Inc., also of San Diego.
The client aims to shave peak-load electricity demand during the latter part of the day by using excess energy stored and discharged from the battery systems.
The current Scantibodies contract calls for 2 MWh for the five-building load.
