Rebate Infomation

Printer-friendly version

One of the topics of discussion at this past Wednesdays's Open Space and Ecology Committee meeting was how individuals who may be doing improvements or remodels at their homes can take advantage of the tax incentives and rebates that are readily available, but may be expiring by December 31, 2010.  Here are some resources that can help you to reduce your home's energy usage, and how you can qualify for the available tax incentives and rebates.

  • www.pge.com/rebates has the latest rebate information, catalogs, and guidance for your next energy efficiency upgrade
  • If you're ready to apply for a rebate, you can apply online through eRebates at www.pge.com/erebates.  With PG&E's eRebates, you can also check the status of your rebate application.
  • Existing homeowners are eligible for tax credits up to a maximum of $1,500 for making energy-efficient home improvements.  Refer to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) matrix (note the deadlines in the "Years Covered" column).
  • The Tax Incentives Assistance Project (TIAP) gives consumers and businesses the information they need to take advantage of the federal income tax incentives passed by Congress as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT), and extended through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

In addition to tax incentives and rebates, PG&E offers a wide range of ways to save energy, money, and help the environment.  PG&E's SmartEnergy Analyzer can help you understand where your energy goes, pinpoint problem areas, and start you on the path to an energy-efficient home.  Click here to access the SmartEnergy Analyzer for businesses.
