We plan and implement comprehensive energy retrofit projects in municipal buildings throughout San Francisco to reduce energy use, save money and improve indoor working environments. Lighting, HVAC and control retrofits, and fuel switching projects are available to our municipal customers. Read some examples of our work below.
LED Lighting Upgrades at the Asian Art Museum
We helped fund a series of major lighting retrofits throughout the gallery spaces of the Asian Art Museum. This project significantly reduced lighting energy usage in the affected spaces while simultaneously providing better illumination for the artwork under display. Additionally, due to the longer lifetimes of the new lights, the maintenance costs over time are expected to be significantly reduced.
Building Energy Management System at Public Health Department Clinics
We upgraded the building controls systems at several Department of Public Health clinics throughout the city. These upgrades allowed for more efficient operation of building heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems while also improving the ability of the facilities' engineers to maintain their sites.
Clean Switch Program
The SFPUC Clean Switch Program offers bill credits to new, full-service Hetch Hetchy Power customers. Eligible customers can receive monthly bill credits as a reimbursement for exit fees when leaving PG&E service. For more information, email CleanSwitch@sfwater.org.
