Energy Upgrade™ California is a statewide program that offers incentives to homeowners who complete select energy-saving home improvements on a single-family residence and two to four unit buildings such as a townhouse, condominium, as well as homeowners associations with either single family homes or two to four unit buildings.
These incentive packages encourage customers to take a “whole house” approach by combining several related improvements at once to increase a home’s overall energy efficiency and achieve greater savings.
By working with participating contractors or raters, homeowners can choose from two incentive options, the Basic Upgrade Package or Advanced Upgrade Package, depending on their improvement needs and budget. Two to four unit buildings only qualify for the Advanced Upgrade Package.
The Basic Package offers up to $2,000 in incentives…
