Savings by Design

Okapi Architecture provides project management and technical review services for the Savings By Design program for Southern California Gas Company (SCGas) and Los Angeles Department Water and Power (LADWP) in the Greater Los Angeles Area.

Savings By Design is a statewide program that offers technical assistance to non-residential projects, and provides attractive incentives to promote long-term energy efficiency. A project can realize up to $150,000 in Owner Incentives and $50,000 in Design Team Incentives can be realized. As a bonus, LADWP is open to increasing the size of the Owner Incentive award to $500,000. There is no fee for project to join the program.   Saving by Design program projects need to be involved early in the design stage.    Some example participants in the Savings by Design program are as follows:
