Home, habits & home upgrades

We all have financial considerations we take into account when we use energy and water. And we all want to live and work in comfortable, cozy homes and places of work. Did you know you may be eligible to receive a climate credit for your home or business? And, there are multifamily programs to provide technical assistance and no-cost or low-cost programs to help conserve your energy and water and save on utility bills. Energy Upgrade California can explain the Home Upgrade Program to lower your energy bills and maximize your energy efficiency. There are lots of energy saving habits we can show you and help you save hundreds of dollars a year.

From choosing kitchen and bath appliances and learning how to use them efficiently to using water wisely, Energy Upgrade California is a lifetime partner. And, for any retailers interested in having Energy Upgrade California in your store, please feel free to contact us.
