If you haven't heard of Energy Upgrade California then great ready because you're about to get an ear full. The State funded program's goal appears to be to consolidate the task of wrangling together all available rebates/incentives, provide referrals to qualified contractors, help owners put together an improvement game plan, and lastly the program is trying to capture contact information of those who are participating so it can measure how effective the entire investment into Energy Upgrade California has been.
Pretty brilliant and exactly what we need, if you ask me!
All rebates and incentives from the Federal Government, State, Utilities gathered up and updated for you in one nice and convenient place online. No longer will you sift through each web-site for looking for a $50 rebate to replace your refrigerator.
Possibly the most unique feature the program does is reach out for the contact information of the online viewer who's interested in improving their building's energy efficiency. Eventually this could be an ultra efficient method of tracking a building owner's energy profile and how to help them improve their efficiency.
The program also reaches out to help educate viewers about potential financing.
