  • energy assessments and audits
  • direct installation of energy efficient equipment
  • technical assistance and financial incentives for energy efficient retrofits in municipal buildings
  • energy efficiency seminars and training courses in the region
  • information on other PG&E energy efficiency programs and services
  • assistance accessing 0% or 3% financing for energy efficiency projects
  • developing Energy Action Strategies for jurisdictions
  • compiling greenhouse gas inventories for jurisdictions

*Eligible PG&E customers include residents, lodging businesses, non-profit organizations, school districts, special districts, and city and county governments located within Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties.

Services and incentives are provided on a first-come, first-served basis and only while funding lasts. California consumers are not obligated to purchase any full fee service or other service not funded by this program.
