WHO is Napa County Energy Watch (NCEW)?

A partnership of the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) and Sustainable Napa County (SNC).   We can be your “one stop shop” for energy efficiency solutions that make your business more cost-effective.  We are members of your community. We live here; your success matters to us. 
WHAT does NCEW do for Napa County businesses?
No cost evaluation of your energy use:  NCEW will give you a comprehensive review of how and where you use energy and will flag your opportunities for reducing use and costs.  The report will give you, in concise form:
  • A roadmap for steps you can take: including bill analysis, rate review, evaluation of retrofit options with costs and simple payback, and priorities for action, with a focus on low or no-cost steps first. 
  • Help finding financing: NCEW will connect you with PG&E’s On Bill Financing program if it’s right for you.
  • The latest information on rebates and incentives: to lower your cost of energy upgrades and improve payback. 
  • Help in finding the right experts: NCEW will work with PG&E to scout the best solutions to unique problems.
  • Help in managing the implementation: including handling the rebate process (and paperwork) and help in finding contractors, reducing the drag on business owner and employee time.
  • Confidential protection of your information
  • Help in becoming a certified Green Business, if that’s your goal.

Is that all?  Not by a long shot.  

Other things NCEW is doing to help Napa County businesses save energy:
  • Keeping you up to date on what’s happening with energy efficiency, renewable energy, utility and state rebates and incentives. NCEW’s job includes knowing the latest technologies, changes in rebates and opportunities to save more energy.  We work with local businesses to make sure they get the information they need to make smart choices.  A great example: LED lights are finally both attractive and very cost effective for many of our retail businesses. 
  • Helping you find financing:  NCEW can connect you with PG&E’s zero interest On Bill Financing program if it makes sense for your energy retrofits. NCEW will also help spread the word about the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) program for businesses when Napa County has it up and running later in 2013. 
  • Bringing PG&E classes to you: We never stop learning; NCEW can help bring timely workshops  (some with continuing education credit) to Napa so you are up to date.
  • Helping you hold on to those savings: Having efficient equipment is part, not all, of the solution.  NCEW will run workshops to help you understand how to keep and build on those savings over the long term – through simple bill tracking and maintenance procedures.  
  • Keeping you in the know about changes in “the rules” – state or Federal, to put you in the best position to act. This year, one focus will be making sure you know about and understand the new Time Varying Pricing (TVP), and can adapt if you need to. 
  • Being your advocate when decisions are made about energy policy, rebates, incentives and resources.
