The California IOUs launched the ESA Multifamily Energy Savings program in 2023 to serve income-qualifying properties and residents by delivering whole-building energy efficiency, electrification and health and safety upgrades.

TRC and RHA provide program implementation services on behalf of the IOUs, including customer/property enrollment, property audits and benchmarking, project design and incentive layering assistance and in-unit upgrades all at no-cost to property owners or residents.

No-cost and reduced-cost property upgrades are eligible to income-qualifying, multifamily properties on a first come, first-served basis.
