Energy Upgrade California – El Cerrito rebates

No cost home energy audit for El Cerrito homes
This audit is your first step to qualify for up to $4,500 in rebates and credits for energy efficiency upgrades.

The El Cerrito Environmental Services Division subsidizes our special El Cerrito $250 audit cost, so your out of pocket cost is zero. We will come to your house and complete a whole house energy performance assessment. After which, your home would potentially qualify for energy efficiency rebates under the Energy Upgrade California Program (www.energyupgradeca.org).

Eligibility for El Cerrito home energy audit rebate
Energy assessments must be performed by a Building Performance Institute (BPI) certified building analyst or contractor, completed for single-family dwellings in the City of El Cerrito, and performed no earlier than 2/1/11. Kobban Builders is an approved contractor for both the El Cerrito rebate and Energy Upgrade California rebates.

Funding is limited. Rebates are paid on a first-come, first-serve basis until 12/31/2011, or until funds are depleted, whichever comes first.

Additional money available for energy upgrade work
Completing an audit provides you with a blueprint for which work should be done to improve your home’s energy efficiency and save you money. PG&E is subsidizing the cost of doing any energy upgrade work. The incentive amounts are based on the estimated energy savings achieved by completing the work:
