The Home Upgrade and Advanced Home Upgrade Calculators have been updated to reflect the changes to the SoCalGas only program and are now available for download from the contractors’ website.
Updated Incentive Application Forms and Info Sheets
The Incentive Application Forms have been updated to reflect updated terms and conditions, eligible measures and the new Home Upgrade Program branding. Please download from the contractors website immediately and use for any new projects. A grace period in which Participating Contractors can continue to use the old forms ends October 31, 2018. Effective November 1, 2018 all projects submitted must use the new forms and no exceptions will be made.
The Information Sheets have also been updated to reflect the new branding and include the addition of new measures: auto-diverting tub spout with thermostatic shut-off showerhead, gas-fired pool heater, smart thermostat and pipe wrap.
Clarification: Smart Thermostats and Pool Heaters
There have been questions about how the smart thermostat and pool heaters contribute to the final incentive per project. The clarification outlined below will help answer these questions.
Smart thermostats and pool heaters do not count toward the three measure minimum requirement for eligibility.
However, a contractor can add a smart thermostat or pool heater to a project that already has the three qualifying measures, bringing the energy savings to the 10 percent threshold or minimum dollar limit ($1,200 for SoCalGas/LADWP and $360 for SoCalGas/Non-LADWP projects). Please see the table below illustrating this.
