Energy Watch is a partnership between the County of San Luis Obispo, Pacific Gas and Electric Company, Southern California Gas Company, and participating cities and Community Service Districts. Energy Watch is a comprehensive program that provides information to targeted customers regarding energy use and cost associated with facilities and infrastructure. This information is used to identify, finance and implement energy and cost savings measures, as well as track building performance.
Energy Watch is also responsible for overseeing the monitoring and implementation of the County’s EnergyWise Plan, which was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in November 2011 and aims to reduce GHG emissions in accordance with state mandates.
