Pasadena Express Efficiency Rebate Program (PEER)

Business Store Front for PEER 


The PEER program provides straight-forward incentives for Pasadena businesses to install for a broad range of permanently installed energy-saving retrofit projects.

EEP vs. PEER: What's the difference?

All Pasadena electric commercial customers are eligible for both energy efficiency programs. The  Energy Efficiency Partnering Program (EEP) is the most complex of the two programs; it provides businesses with customized incentives based on kWh saved. Pasadena’s Express Efficiency Program (PEER) on the other hand, provides businesses with a predetermined incentive based on type of equipment and the number of units installed.

Here is a list of the Key Differences:

  • Businesses will typically receive larger rebates from the EEP program, but the PEER program is easier to apply for and rebates are received in less time. 
  • PEER is ideal for smaller projects and EEP should be used for larger more complex projects
  • EEP provides third party engineering review of your project to determine what is a reasonable expectation of your projects energy savings.
  • The PEER program only incentivizes some of the most popular measures.  Don't see your energy efficiency measure on the list below? No problem, almost all energy efficiency projects are eligible for a rebate through the EEP program!

Projects employing local vendors may be eligible for bonus incentives under both programs.  

Total rebate amount may not exceed 50% of total project cost, or $100,000 per metered account per fiscal year (July 1 - June 30).
