Money for energy-efficient home upgrades

 

San Mateo County residents who decide to lower their utility bills by upgrading the energy-efficient elements of their homes can also qualify for up to $8,000 in incentives, thanks to a collaboration between the county and Pacific Gas & Electric Corp.

The program offers basic and advanced upgrade packages, based on the number and type of modifications homeowners make. The basic set of seven improvements includes duct sealing, hot water pipe insulation, and attic insulation, and qualifies for up to $1,000 in incentives. The advanced package consists of all basic features, plus projects such as installing energy-efficient windows.
