Your energy-saving home improvements may be more affordable than ever with the help of Energy Upgrade California™.

New Programs offer up to $4,000 in incentives for home energy upgrades

Your energy-saving home improvements may be more affordable than ever with the help of Energy Upgrade California™.

This new program offers incentives of up to $4,000 for qualified projects that improve your home’s energy efficiency and lower your energy bills.  If you own an existing single-family detached home, there are two ways you can participate in Energy Upgrade California™.

1.“ Basic Plan”

You may receive up to $1,000 in incentives if you have an eligible contractor complete all six of the following:

  • Seal attic air leaks
  • Insulate attic to minimum R-38
  • Insulate attic air ducts for central heating and air-conditioning systems.
  • Insulate hot-water pipes (existing wrap OK)
  • Test Natural gas appliances for correct venting and certify combustion safety.
  • Install thermostatic shut-off value on shower to save hot water (existing value OK).

2. “Advanced Path”

You may receive incentives ranging from $1,250 for 10% energy savings to $4,000 for 40% energy savings when your eligible contractor installs a comprehensive mix of measures based on a pre-approved work plan. A certified Home Energy Efficiency Rater must evaluate the overall energy savings based on this combination of measures.  Examples of eligible measures include high efficiency heating and cooling systems, energy-efficient windows and skylights, and tankless and solar water-heating systems.

How to Get Started
