Home Upgrade by California Energy Solutions is a statewide program that offers up to $6,500 in rebates when you make energy-saving home improvements. It takes a comprehensive approach and observing at all the systems in your home to determine what upgrades will most effectively reduce energy usage while providing you with a comfortable living environment. Rather than focusing on individual energy efficiency upgrades, the program addresses your home’s energy needs as a complete system.
To get started with your Home Upgrade, you must work with a participating contractor like California Energy Solutions. All participating contractors and raters in our database are certified and have been trained to look holistically at your home and identify improvements that will save you the most energy and money. They can help you through the entire process, from assessing your home, to filling out the rebate paperwork.
California Energy Solutions’ Home Upgrade professional will make a thorough evaluation of the heating, cooling and water heating systems in your home and then recommend upgrades that will make your home more energy efficient.
The Home Upgrade option helps you make basic upgrades that can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of their homes. The Advanced Home Upgrade provides a customized plan for improving a home’s energy efficiency. Starting with an energy assessment, the PG&E-approved contractor or rater works with the homeowner to identify the best ways to reduce energy use.
You should receive your rebate check 6-8 weeks from when we receive your completed paperwork. In addition to the rebate, you should start seeing savings on your energy bill each month.
For example, your air conditioner keeps your house cool and use less energy if you seal the air ducts to eliminate drafts. Home Upgrade helps you maximize your energy efficiency, lower your energy bills, and increase your home’s comfort. The criteria for qualification is as follows, it includes the owners of single-family residences, two to four unit townhouses and condominiums and two to four unit buildings homeowners
Work with a specially-trained Participating Contractor like California Energy Solutions or a Home Upgrade Advisor to review possible energy efficiency improvements that meet your energy and comfort needs. You must choose a minimum of three measures (base or flex, see lists below) to qualify. All base and flex measures are worth a certain number of pre-determined points that count toward your Home Upgrade rebate. The more points you earn by combining upgrades, the more you’ll receive in rebates. Each point is worth $10, for a maximum of $3,000 measures rebate per project. An additional $150 rebate is available to offset combustion safety testing costs of completed projects.
California Energy Solutions recommends to enhance your Home Upgrade with green building improvements, solar, and other projects that conserve resources and help the environment. You might be eligible for additional utility, city, and county incentives. Ask a Home Upgrade Advisor about Home Upgrade options.
Solar Installed Last Months
From start to finish a high class operation. The estimator was more knowable than all others about the insulation process and products, They gave me a very accurate description of the scope of the job and sequence of events needed to achieve my objectives. the installers did a very professional job in a timely manor and the follow up guys (paint/drywall) did an invisible patch on the access hole that had to be cut to blow in the insulation. Every one showed up on time, left the house as clean as they found it. I was always advised of any changes in scheduling. Also, they had the best price.
Andrew was fantastic in his presentation. I am in sales so I appreciate the time and effort he puts into his work. The installation crew was also professional and timely with their work. I would gladly recommend them to all my friends and business contacts.
Andrew and his crew were great! Very fast and wonderful quality. Everybody was very pleasant to deal with.
I was very pleased with the service that I received from California Energy Solutions Inc. Everyone was very professional. I would refer to a family or friend.
I immediately felt comfortable with Andrew Kalman - he was professional and courteous and really knew his products. It never felt like he was trying to do a 'sell' job on me which I very much appreciated. On the day of the installation, 4 guys showed up to install my 10 windows at the promised time, went quickly and efficiently to work and cleaned up after themselves in the evening. They were all very courteous and actually left my house cleaner than it was when they started!
This crew is absolutely the best. The quote included everything. We live in Long Beach, so it included pulling permits before and waiting for the inspection after. At any rate, the two guys who did the installation did all the duct work, vents and installation of the unit in just 2 days! Then they had an independent company do the Hers testing, Professional from beginning to end! We will surely have them add insulation to our home.
It was a pleasure to work with a contractor, who from the moment he first walked into my home, was informative, organized, exceptionally prepared, and friendly. I would highly recommend this company and it's owner to anyone.
