Energy-Efficient Californians To Save Money Through New Program

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)- A new energy saving program has been rolled out in the Bay Area to help homeowners become more energy efficient while saving on utility costs.

The project coordinator, Christine Collopy calls this an unprecedented program that encourages homeowners in the Bay Area, and throughout the state, to make their homes more energy efficient.

KCBS’ Dave Padilla Reports:

”They can get all of the information they need about energy retrofits and upgrades,” said Collopy. “It’s a spot that they can get incentive rebate information. It’s really one spot to find all of the information you need.”

She said energy upgrade rebates range from $1,000 to $4,000.

Collopy said the program connects homeowners with participating contractors who have expertise in upgrades, retrofits and home energy audits. Utility companies, state agencies and local governments are all joining forces in Energy Upgrade California.

Collopy said that in addition to the benefits to homeowners, the program is creating hundreds of jobs in California.
