How It Works

With the California Foodservice Instant Rebates Program, California Investor Owned Utility (IOU)* customers can get valuable Instant Rebates on qualifying energy-efficient equipment for their businesses.

You can skip the paperwork and receive an Instant Rebate as a discount directly on your invoice when you purchase qualifying high-efficiency natural gas or electric commercial foodservice equipment from participating dealers .

Qualifying equipment must be installed at a non-residential site that receives natural gas and/or electricity service from one or more of the California IOUs.

* The California IOUs are SoCalGas®, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E®), Southern California Edison Company (SCE®) and San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E®).

Major cooking appliances account for almost 35% of the average restaurant’s energy expenditures¹.

Upgrading to high-efficiency equipment uses less natural gas, electricity and water and, can reduce those costs by as much as 75% compared to standard efficiency equipment. Plus, many energy saving products produce less heat, which could increase comfort and could decrease your cooling costs.

¹ Energy consumption for commercial kitchens based on a study by Energy Star . Actual savings may vary.
