Industrial and Manufacturing Testimonials

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 industrial/manufacturing customers who have benefited from our most popular energy-efficiency program features.

Wesley Chung, president of US Garment LLC


SoCalGas gave about $2,000 in rebates to US Garment LLC for two energy-efficient boilers. “Our existing boiler was getting old, and the newer models were much smaller and much more efficient,” said Wesley Chung, the company’s president.

Custom Analog Oscillation Sequence

SoCalGas gave an $80,000 incentive to Schlosser Forge for upgrading its furnace with a custom analog oscillation sequence. “I’ve reached efficiencies I hadn’t thought possible,” said Schlosser’s Mike McBride. “I thought we would get about a 10 percent improvement but we got about 30 percent.”

Phillip Newell, project engineer at Guardian Glass


SoCalGas gave Guardian Glass a $40,000 incentive for furnace insulation. “It’s saving us about 780,000 therms a year for one furnace,” said Phillip Newell, Guardian’s project engineer.

Energy-Efficiency Assessments

“I saved $22,000 without spending a dime,” said Yusheng Shew, president of Tri J Heat Treating. He asked for SoCalGas’ energy-efficiency assessment, performed at no cost, which identified the most efficient furnaces. “Using that information, I reorganized my work flow to maximize the use of those furnaces,” he said.
