         Utility representatives prepared energy-efficiency commitments that identify the
          targeted enhanced performance of the project, estimate the financial incentive
          offered through the program, and specified a combination of energy-efficiency
          strategies that are to be included in the constructed project.
         Program engineers offered design assistance matched to the needs of the project
          and custom analysis at no-cost to the customers. This assistance identifies
          opportunities for energy-efficiency enhancements beyond code compliance and
          outlines opportunities for incentive through program participation.
         Calculated savings were used to estimate potential financial incentives
          committed through the program, using the Whole Building or Systems

5.    Program performance/program status
          Program is on target
          Program is exceeding expectations
          Program is falling short of expectations

      Program is on target considering the change from valuing “commitments” to only
      counting “installed” nonresidential new construction projects. This change has led
      to a significant timing hurdle that will be overcome across the next three years;
      though activity is high and on-going, installed nonresidential new construction will
      take several more quarters to catch-up on the records.

6.    Program achievements (non-resource programs only):
       Not Applicable for Savings By Design

7.    Changes in program emphasis, if any, from previous quarter (new program
      elements, less or more emphasis on a particular delivery strategy, program elements
      discontinued, measure discontinued, budget changes, etc.).
       None

8.    Discussion of near-term plans for program over the coming months (e.g., marketing
      and outreach efforts that are expected to significantly increase program
      participation, etc.)
       Participating and exhibiting at statewide and regional trade organization events
          that are targeted to decision makers in the nonresidential new construction
       Bringing energy efficiency specialists to design firms working on potential
          Savings By Design projects that would benefit from energy-efficiency focused
          consultation and analysis.

9.    Changes to staffing and staff responsibilities, if any
       An Account Executive has left the program group and the open position is being
         filled through on-going interviews with prospective candidates.

10. Changes to contracts
     An Addendum was added to the Savings By Design contract as offered by
       SDG&E that clarifies participating projects must be constructed before
       December 15, 2008. (PDF provided in Marketing Materials.)

11. Changes to contractors and contractor responsibilities, if any
     None

12. Number of customer complaints received
     None

13. Revisions to program theory and logic model, if any
    Provided in February 1, 2006 concept paper.
     None
