Take advantage of the millions of dollars offered by Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) to help business customers buy energy-efficient equipment. Here we share testimonials from satisfied hotel/lodging customers who have benefited from our most popular energy-efficiency program features.
|Tankless Water Heaters
SoCalGas gave Best Western Executive Inn in Rowland Heights $1,596 in rebates for two tankless water heaters. "They're taking care of all of the hot water needs for our 135-room hotel," said Jovy Cheng, general manager. "There aren't any downsides to this equipment. I'm very pleased."
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.
SoCalGas gave a $500 rebate to the restaurant at The Beverly Garland Hotel for a combination oven. "The combi oven is the most versatile appliance in my kitchen, and it's a proven energy saver," said Daniel Csotai, the restaurant's executive chef.
