Permanent Load Shift-Thermal Energy Storage Workshop

Program Informational Workshops

PG&E’s Permanent Load Shift-Thermal Energy Storage (PLS-TES) Program is designed to help customers shift their cooling electricity use and lower their energy costs by offering one-time, upfront incentives to offset initial investments in mature TES systems. TES systems accomplish load shifts by creating and storing ice or chilled water in off-peak hours and utilizing it for cooling in the typically hotter on-peak hours of the afternoon. The incentive is based on designed kW shift and, when coupled with bill savings from load shifts out of expensive peak hours, can improve the payback period on an investment in a TES system.

PLS-TES workshops are being held to inform vendors, customers, and engineers about the Program and its requirements. This will include discussions of the Program benefits, requirements and processes, as well as best practices for all stages of installing and running a TES system.

All workshops are complimentary and will be held at PG&E’s Pacific Energy Center (PEC) in San Francisco or PG&E’s Energy Training Center in Stockton.
