Overview

Fall in love with your home again.

You already lead an energy-smart lifestyle. Energy Upgrade California™ Home Upgrade can help you take the next step toward more comfortable, healthy living. Join your neighbors and discover how an energy upgrade can help you fall in love with your home again.

Offered by The Energy Network and Energy Upgrade California, Home Upgrade is open to homeowners of single-family, detached homes in Los Angeles County who are customers of both Southern California Edison and Southern California Gas Company. We offer up to $3,000 in rebates and incentives to homeowners who install qualifying energy efficiency upgrades.

Improving your home, the Whole House way.

Your house is a complete system, with many parts working together. Sometimes, “hidden” improvements offer the most benefit. For example, your air conditioner can keep your house cooler using less energy if you seal the air ducts and eliminate drafts. Home Upgrade uses a Whole House approach to help you choose the right upgrades for your home.

  • Improve your comfort
  • Reduce your energy use
  • Increase your home’s value
  • Earn up to $3,000 in rebates and incentives

A Participating Contractor can help you choose the right options for your home – and make sure you are eligible for rebates and incentives. Find a Participating Contractor or call (877) 785-2237 for more information. Qualified projects must be completed by a Participating Contractor. Conditions apply.

It's easy to get started.

To qualify, you must install at least one Base Measure and a total of three or more measures. The rebate and incentive amount is determined by the point value of the completed measures: $10 per point, up to $3,000 maximum.
