Monday, July 1, 2019



With the tremendous efforts of our Participating Contractors we saw a huge uptick in project submissions during the Spring Special. The Program wants to keep the momentum going with fireworks of our own for the July 4 holiday and the rest of summer.

We are excited to announce that the Summer Special is here starting on July 4, 2019. 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.

Summer Special Rollout

Territory: All SoCalGas territories excluding LADWP

Project Path: Home Upgrade Only

Incentive Increase: Current non-LADWP incentive

plus up to 50% added to your total incentive amount


Ductless Homes Qualify

Homes without central HVAC can only qualify for Program incentives if the Advanced Home Upgrade project pathway is taken. This means homes with window AC units or wall furnaces can be upgraded to central HVAC; however, fuel-switching is not allowed.

Please note: the project must be modeled with SnuggPro to qualify.

  • The 90-Day Cancellation Policy is still in effect. If a project has not been completed within 90 days from the project reservation date, the project is subject to cancellation. 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.
  • The SoCalGas Home Upgrade program no longer falls under the umbrella of Energy Upgrade California®. Most program documents have been updated to reflect the look that aligns with the SoCalGas brand. You can find these updated materials on the contractor website.
