Heard of Energy Upgrade California? It’s the statewide program offering homeowners rebates and incentives for home energy upgrades. The program is an alliance between the County of Los Angeles and local utility companies aimed at improving the energy performance of thousands of homes, preserving the environment, and boosting our local economy with green construction jobs. LA County has selected our organization as an Energy Champion for the program, which gives us the opportunity to raise funds for our organization.
As an Energy Champion, here’s what we do:
LA County homeowners can now receive up to $8,000 back* in rebates and incentives for home energy upgrades, such as basic weatherization, insulation, improvements to their windows, and heating and air conditioning systems. These upgrades can save a significant amount of energy and lead to lower utility bills—savings that are good for the environment and your finances.
*Effective September 6, 2011: The LA County rebate amount has increased to offer homeowners with qualified energy upgrades up to $4,000 back. This is in addition to the original $4,000 utility incentive. Grand total: up to $8,000 back!
As an Energy Champion, Uncommon Good can receive up to $500 from LA County for each completed upgrade designated to us. So after you’ve decided to move forward with your upgrade, make sure you designate us as your Energy Champion by filling out the Homeowner Action Form.
If you need assistance filling out the Homeowner Action Form – call us, we’re here to help! Incentives are distributed first-come, first-served, but there is no limit to how much we can receive—as long as funds are still available.
Lastly, tell your friends, family and neighbors about Energy Upgrade California—its purpose and the benefits to its participants. Let’s encourage California homeowners to upgrade and designate Uncommon Good as their Energy Champion.
Energy Upgrade California and the Energy Champion program means energy and cost savings for participating homeowners and new funds for our organization!
Let’s start saving—and earning—now!
