Worried about the SoCalREN Program ending? We’ve got you!
From August 1 to Aug 31, 2018, all projects in the SoCalREN territory are eligible to participate in the joint SCE/SoCalGas program at the full 100% incentive!
Beginning September 1, 2018 both the SoCalREN and joint SCE/SoCalGas territories will be folded into the SoCalGas only program. Projects will be incentivized at the rate of 30% of the total incentive amount (for Home Upgrade) or total energy savings amount (for Advanced Home Upgrade) for projects in the SoCalGas Municipalities excluding LADWP. The program will be offering free third-party diagnostic testing and project processing, too!
Please contact your account manager if you have any questions.
New Measure: Pipe Wrap
The program has brought back the inclusion of pipe wrap as a measure for both Home Upgrade and Advanced Home Upgrade.
This measure will not qualify as a part of the three measure minimum requirement for both Home Upgrade and Advanced Home Upgrade. The measure will not be incentivized in Home Upgrade but will count toward the minimum 10% energy savings requirement.
For Advanced Home Upgrade, the measure will contribute to energy savings and additional incentives through the $130/percentage point calculations. The Incentive Calculators are currently being updated and will be available on the contractors’ website as soon as possible.
The program Info Sheets have been updated to include the new measure and are available for download on the contractors’ website. Please contact your account manager if you have any questions.
Marketing Effort for Riverside and LADWP Territories – Lead Program
The program is preparing a marketing blitz for the Riverside and LADWP territories in an effort to generate leads for our contractors and boost participation in the program.
For those Contractors that have submitted a project in the last 6 months you’re automatically enrolled in this effort.
If you’re interested in participating and not sure if you’re enrolled, please reach out to your account manager for more information.
Reminder: Removal of BPI On-Staff Requirement for Advanced Home Upgrade
For access to greater incentives through Advanced Home Upgrade, contractors are no longer required to have BPI Building Analysts (BA) on-staff to offer the Advanced Home Upgrade Pathway, effective immediately.
Participating Contractors can now work with any third-party BPI BAs in the marketplace to perform diagnostic testing for Advanced Home Upgrade and offer customers this pathway with a BPI BA on-team rather than on-staff.
If you would like more information on submitting Advanced Home Upgrade projects, please contact your account management team.
Reminder: Mentoring No Longer Required
Newly trained BPI BAs will no longer be required to attend mentoring sessions in order to perform testing for projects.
This also applies to new contractors joining the program. Although mentoring is not required, it is highly recommended in order to help support contractors with program requirements. To schedule a mentoring session, please contact your account manager.
Reminder: New Contactor Participation Agreement
The Contractor Participation Agreement that was updated in 2018 to be more contractor-friendly is now available on the contractor website here. This document must be signed and returned to your account manager to remain active in the program. Please contact your account management team if you have questions about any changes.
Reminder: 90-Day Cancellation Policy
To ensure that ineligible projects do not tie up reserved incentive funds, the program will continue instituting a 90-day project cancellation policy. If a project has not been completed within 90 days from the project reservation date, the project is subject to cancellation by the program.
Participating Contractors at risk of getting their projects cancelled will be notified well ahead of time so that they are able to take action to prevent cancellation. Please contact your account manager if you have any questions or concerns about any at-risk projects.
