SoCalGas’ CLEO Program helping families save on energy costs

With people nationwide feeling the financial pinch caused by the ongoing, months-long COVID-19 pandemic and public health crisis more than ever, the Southern California Gas Company’s CLEO program is one way families and businesses can find relief and assistance during these harder than normal times.

The CLEO program is tailored to help customers save energy and lower their electric, gas, and water bills according to Global Energy Services (GES), a worldwide business that provides marketing, education, and outreach programs and works under SoCalGas to help educate Gas customers on how to lower their utility bills.

With more than 40 years experience in designing resource conservation and efficiency programs worldwide, GES is an energy engineering and energy efficiency marketing education and outreach program headquartered in Diamond Bar, CA.

GES has consulted on numerous energy efficiency projects for the World Bank, California Energy Commission and USAID, as well as local Cities and numerous Utilities in Southern California; including SoCalGas’ CLEO program.

The program is free to all customers of the Gas Company and funded by a 3% “Public Purpose Charge” that all customers pay as part of their normal utility bills every month, GES’s CLEO Program Manager Joscelyn Mendoza recently explained to RCNS.

The CLEO program being offered by SoCalGas includes free parts and installation of Nest Smart thermostats, low-flow showerheads, faucet aerators, and tub spout diverters – a $500 value for free, according to Mendoza; who explained CLEO applicants must have a current SoCalGas bill in their name to qualify.

Additionally, if your water heater is more than ten years old, the CLEO program offers free installation of qualified, Energy Star water heaters, which customers need to purchase, according to Mendoza.
