We all play a role in bringing clean energy to your home. It starts by making smart energy choices.
Before you install a renewable energy source for your home, it is essential to do everything you can to improve your current energy efficiency. A few simple measures can save you money by reducing your overall energy or water consumption. You may be able to save thousands of dollars in up-front costs by reducing the size of the system you will need to install for your home. Understanding your energy usage also will also help to prepare you for an informed discussion with your contractor.
PG&E provides a useful Home Energy Checkup available in the My Energy section of this website. This energy-efficiency audit is also required to qualify for some of the rebate and incentive programs offered by PG&E.
Choosing the best renewable energy system for your home begins by finding a qualified contractor. Your contractor will help select the system and sizing that meets your home’s energy needs, as well as arrange the permitting, installation, and site inspections necessary to connect your system to PG&E. If you qualify for rebates or incentives, your contractor also will also help to fill out the required application forms. Find qualified contractors in your area.
