Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (DSIRE.org)
This state-wide rebate program offers homeowner workshops so you can learn how to qualify for up to $4,000 in rebates on a home energy efficiency upgrade
Getting an Energy Upgrade isn't just about saving energy. If that were the case you could simply spend a fortune and get solar. But solar won't fix the rooms that are too cold or too warm. Solar won't fix leaky ducts that bring mold, dust & pollen into your home.
Energy Upgrade California is an exciting statewide program that helps property owners improve the energy efficiency of their buildings and puts local construction workers back to work.
Property owners can use this website to learn about upgrade options that qualify for rebates and other incentives, from basic sealing and insulation to energy-efficient HVAC systems, water-efficient plumbing fixtures and more.
Through this program, property owners can also find licensed contractors qualified to do the upgrade work and who can help owners obtain rebates and other incentives.
