Southern California Gas Co. announced Monday that customers saved $56.1 million in 2018 on their annual natural gas bills through the utility’s energy efficiency programs.

The energy savings also reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to removing more than 57,000 cars from the road for a year, according to SoCalGas.

“By giving our customers the programs and tools they need to purchase high efficiency gas appliances and make their existing gas appliances more efficient, customers can both lower their bills and curb carbon emissions,” said Dan Rendler, director of customer programs and assistance at SoCalGas.

The utility’s energy efficiency programs include offering rebates on home appliances and products that help conserve energy and reduce costs, such as tankless water heaters and smart thermostats.

Customers can use the website SoCalGas Marketplace to find and compare energy efficient products. The site points users to rebates of $75 on select smart thermostats and Energy Star natural gas dryers, $200 on select water heaters and furnaces and up to $75 on select washing machines.
