Inflation Reduction Act Residential Energy Rebate Programs in California

The federal Inflation Reduction Act includes two residential energy rebate programs and funding for contractor training grants related to these programs. More than $582 million is anticipated to be allocated to California for the whole-house Homeowner Managing Energy Savings (HOMES) rebate program and the point-of-sale High-Efficiency Electric Home Rebate (HEEHRA) program.
The CEC will hold workshops to seek input on program development in late 2023. The CEC expects rebates will become available in 2024. The CEC has established a docket to receive written input.
