Energy saving upgrades for income-qualified properties
Energy upgrades reduce energy costs and can improve the health, comfort and safety of affordable multifamily homes and common areas. The program serves deed-restricted and non-deed-restricted properties in Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E), Southern California Edison (SCE), and Southern California Gas (SoCal Gas) service territories.
Property owners and managers of deed-restricted and non-deed-restricted multifamily properties can take advantage of the program. The program can also assist income-qualified residents with in-unit upgrades.
