In The Bay Area? Rebates Now Available For Energy Efficiency Improvements

san francisco alamo squareIf you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, you may want to check out the new rebate opportunities available through the Bay Area Regional Energy Network (BayREN) for home improvements that increase your home’s energy efficiency.

“Energy Upgrade California™ Home Upgrade offers rebates to single-family homeowners (one to four units) in the nine Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, and Sonoma,” BayREN writes. “Details about the rebates and a free Home Upgrade Advisor service are at BayAreaEnergyUpgrade.org.”

Incentives range from $1,000 to $4,500, with another $300 for completing a home energy assessment.

As noted, more details can be obtained at the link above. But here are also a few more:

Eligible home improvements include air sealing; duct sealing; attic insulation; high-efficiency furnaces, cooling systems, and water systems; wall insulation; and more.

In addition, a free Home Upgrade Advisor can provide direct one-to-one assistance to help homeowners through every step of the upgrade. Home Upgrade Advisors are Building Performance Institute certified energy efficiency professionals who can inform homeowners about their energy efficiency options, help them select an appropriate participating contractor, and help them navigate project installation and financing processes.

Homeowners can contact a Home Upgrade Advisor by calling 866-878-6008 or by submitting a brief form on the BayAreaEnergyUpgrade.org site. The site also features a list of participating contractors in the Bay Area. Homeowners who are ready to begin their upgrade can contact a participating contractor directly.

Looks like a great opportunity to finally make some home energy efficiency improvements you’ve been putting off.
