Electrify Your Home Program Launches

First there was Electrify Your Ride, now Central Coast Community Energy (CCCE) is encouraging you to Electrify Your House. The Electrify Your Home program in partnership with TECH Clean California, provides contractors with cash incentives for switching gas-powered water heaters and HVAC equipment to all-electric versions in single-family and multi-family homes. CCCE’s energy programs incentives are tiered to provide the greatest benefit to customers with the fewest resources. In addition, contractors completing work on CCCE customer sites that qualify for CARE/FERA are eligible for an additional $1,000 per unit incentive through the Electrify Your Home program. Electrify Your Home will further advance CCCE’s efforts to reduce regional greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through electrification of the building sector.
