Small Business Direct Install Program

Free Efficiency Upgrades for Your Business

The Small Business Direct Install (SBDI) Program is available to qualifying businesses whose average monthly electrical demand is 30 kilowatts (kW) or less. If you are interested in making your operation more energy and water efficient, we can help.

SBDI Program Fact Sheet

How It Works

A trained Energy Service Representative (ESR) will contact you and arrange a time to visit your business and evaluate your energy and water use. This free assessment will identify areas where you can save energy and water.

If you agree with the recommendations, the ESR will have you sign an Authorization Form and schedule an appointment to install the equipment at a time most convenient to you.

The installation of the recommended equipment will be done without significant interference to your normal business operation – so you can stay open!

Energy and Water Saving Measures

These measures include:
  • Upgrades to energy efficient lighting system and lamps
  • LED exit signs
  • Pipe and water heater insulation
  • Pre-rinse spray valves
  • Low-flow showerheads
  • Faucet aerators
  • Low-flow toilets


Open to LADWP non-residential electric customers, in good standing, in Rate class A-1, whose average monthly electrical use is 30 kW or less.

Customers who lease their business are eligible for program participation, but landlord permission is required.
