Redwood Coast Energy Watch is a partnership of the Redwood Coast Energy Authority and Pacific Gas and Electric Company to help Humboldt County utility customers save energy, save money, and live more comfortably.

The Energy Watch partnership:

  • Provides education, technical assistance, and direct installation services for the commercial, residential, and government market sectors
  • Operates an Energy Resource Center to host workshops, house a book and tool lending library, and provide phone and walk-in technical assistance to the general public
  • Works with public agencies on a range of strategic initiatives to develop local codes and standards that encourage energy efficiency and promote energy security and reliability


Business Services
The Energy Watch program offers free, start-to-finish technical assistance and instant rebates to help reduce the cost of installing efficient lighting, refrigeration improvements, and other energy efficiency measures at businesses.

Residential Services
The Energy Watch program helps Humboldt County residents increase the energy efficiency of their homes through home energy assessments and efficiency upgrades.

Non-Profit Energy Efficiency Program (NEEP)
Available to local non-profit organizations, NEEP matches standard Energy Watch incentives and services with foundation funds. These combined funds often cover 75-100% of total project costs. Please call for more information.

Government Services
The Energy Watch program provides public agencies with specialized assistance to identify energy efficiency opportunities, develop project specifications, secure financing, apply for incentives, and coordinate retrofits.

Funding is limited. Services and incentives are provided on a first-come first-served basis and only while funding lasts. California consumers are not obligated to purchase any full-fee service or other service not funded by this program. This program is funded by California utility customers and administered by PG&E under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.
