Pg&e Whole House Rebate Program


The whole house rebate program will consist of two major components: the statewide prescriptive whole house retrofit program (or "basic package") and pg&e's local whole house performance program (or "advanced package"). The basic package is statewide and will offer customers and installers an easy entry point on the path to home energy efficiency performance. The basic package will allow customers to increase the energy efficiency and comfort of their existing homes and minimize lost opportunities for future comprehensive retrofit options. It will also educate installers and customers on the benefits of implementing comprehensive eem retrofits on existing buildings that provide systematic reductions in energy use.

Energy Efficiency Low-income Weatherization Program


Liwp provides a variety of services intended to promote the use of safe and clean energy in households living within the disadvantaged communities. Once eligibility criteria is met, including income qualifications and location of residence (must be in the dac, or disadvantaged communities area), build it green sends out its qualified and certified assessors to determine the energy products available for the home. These improvements can save a homeowner money on their utility bills to achieve better energy efficiency. They are installed at zero cost to the homeowner.
