Save money and energy at the same time with Energy Upgrade California. Energy Upgrade California is a statewide program that helps homeowners make upgrades to their home in order to reduce energy use, conserve resources, and create more comfortable and efficient homes. Homeowners learn about the upgrade process, find a contractor to do the work, and apply for rebates and incentives to pay for it.
Most of your home’s energy loss happens due to leaks and insufficient insulation. In the winter, warm air escapes through your attic and old ducts. In the summer, hot sun bakes the shell of your house and creates an oven inside, making your air conditioning work harder than it should.
Contact an Energy Upgrade California participating contractor.
- Your contractor will complete the following required measures:
- Air sealing
- Attic insulation
- Duct sealing
- Hot water pipe insulation, where accessible
- Thermostatic shut-off valve
- Combustion appliance safety testing including installation of Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitor
- Recommended: Low flow showerhead
Once the work is complete, apply for your utility incentive of up to $1,000. You can apply for additional rebates and incentives where available.
Want to go green? You can add enhanced options such as solar power, water efficient landscaping, or eco-friendly materials to your project. These options are not eligible for utility incentives, but there may be additional rebates and incentives available from other sources. Talk to your participating contractor about additional rebates and incentives that may be available for enhanced options.
