Multifamily Property Owners and Managers

Energy Efficiency Rebates for Multifamily Properties

  • multi_family

    Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) offers energy efficiency rebates to property owners and managers of multifamily dwellings that contain two or more units. The program encourages owners of existing properties to upgrade to qualifying energy-efficient products in individual tenant units and in the common areas of residential apartment buildings, mobile home parks and condominium complexes.

UPDATE: On December 11, 2013, the California Energy Commission voted to delay implementation of the Title 24 code update until July 1, 2014. As a result, the Multifamily program will continue to offer rebates for qualifying dual pane Windows and Occupancy Sensors. These projects must be purchased and installed on or before June 30, 2014. Rebate applications must be submitted by July 31, 2014.
