Have you made a few upgrades at your house lately such as replace old, leaky windows, or upgrade to a new energy efficient air conditioning unit? If you have, you could be eligible for a rebate from PG&E!
Through the Energy Upgrade California program, homeowners could qualify for rebates of up to $6,500 from PG&E when energy-saving improvements are made to their homes.
The program rewards you for taking a comprehensive, whole-home approach to energy efficiency, rather than focusing on individual improvements. Heating, air-conditioning, and water heating all work together to help you live comfortably and lower your utility bills.
It's fairly easy to qualify. Owners of single-family residences, two- to four-unit townhouses and condominiums, single-family homes, and two- to four-unit buildings in homeowners associations all qualify for rebates. A local contractor or rater will work with you to determine which improvements are best for your home and how to qualify for rebates.
PG&E offers suggestions to help you determine which "bundle" will best suit your home and upgrade needs. For example, if you were to upgrade your heating or cooling system, which would include the furnace or air conditioner, duct insulation, and duct sealing and/or replacement, you could earn up to $1500 in rebates!
An attic upgrade could get you up to $2500 in rebates! That would include attic insulation and air sealing, whole-building air sealing, duct insulation, and duct sealing and/or replacement. You can also create your own bundles if you don't see one that suits your needs.
As always, you can call us at 800-498-1833 to do the work needed to get your energy rebates!
California's ultimate energy goal is to reduce our emission of harmful greenhouse gases (the pollutants that cause climate change) to 1990 levels by 2020. To reach that goal, Californians must reduce their home's energy consumption by about 40%. Increase renewable energy in our utilities’ power mix to 33% and almost triple the amount of rooftop solar and other distributed power we have today. And make sure all new homes produce as much energy as they consume (called Zero Net Energy).
