Get your homeowner the best rebate possible
Did you know? Participating Contractors can submit two applications for one qualifying Home Upgrade project.
TwoappsHere's an example.
An analysis of Home Upgrade projects shows that the most common measures include: Attic Insulation, Duct Sealing, Duct Insulation, Air Conditioner, and Furnace. 

Adding just one more measure - Air Sealing - could provide an additional rebate of $450-$650 with two applications.

  • Attic Insulation & Plane Sealing (R-38)
  • Duct Sealing or Replacement (6%)
  • Duct Insulation 
  • AC Replacement (15 SEER)
  • Central Furnace (92 AFUE)
  • + $150 BONUS (for two base measures)
  • = $3,000 maximum Home Upgrade rebate

After - two applications

DoubledippingYou wouldn't double-dip at a party...
Don't forget, Home Upgrade measures that have previously participated in a rebate program with Southern California Edison/SoCalGas� are not eligible to receive another rebate through Home Upgrade. This is considered "double-dipping."
