IT'S WARMING UP!

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SUMMER SPECIAL

Check out the SIX ways that the SoCalGas® Home Upgrade Program is here to support YOU!

1) SUMMER SPECIAL 2019

As the tremendous efforts of our Participating Contractors continue to bring in great results, the Program wants to keep the momentum going this summer.

For a limited time only, SoCalGas is offering a bonus of up to 50% more of your total incentive amount! If you are completing a Home Upgrade project in any SoCalGas territory (excluding areas served by LADWP) this can encourage your customers to go for deeper retrofits and maximum energy efficiency.

Use the Summer Special to increase sales during the summer rush. Be sure to enter the code “Summer19” in the Coupon Code field when entering your application in the WebApp. This will help the Program team track the number of projects that benefitted from the Summer Special.
