Pool Heaters

SoCalGas gave Sportsman's Lodge a $1,800 incentive for an energy-efficient pool heater. "Pool heating is a major expense, so an energy-efficient pool heater made sense to us," said Fidel Aviles, chief operating engineer.

Dryers for In-house Laundries

SoCalGas gave Hyatt Westlake Plaza a $4,400 incentive for replacing an older dryer with three energy-efficient units. "The new dryers give us greater reliability and more operating flexibility," said Scott McFarlane, director of operations.

Hot Water Recycling Systems

SoCalGas gave Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel an incentive of $18,000 for a hot water recycling system, which purifies water through filtration, ozone injection and ultraviolet disinfection. "Since the system injects ozone into the water, it provides a gentler wash and prolongs the life cycle of our terry and linen products," said Mike Williams, director of engineering.
