From the Orange County Breeze: “Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) today announced a significant expansion of its Energy Savings Assistance Program. As many as 500,000 additional low-income families may now be eligible to receive no-cost energy efficient home upgrades. In addition, SoCalGas is intensifying outreach efforts to increase enrollments in the program to ensure the health, safety, and comfort of its most vulnerable customers.
“We are pleased to offer income-qualified renters and homeowners a program that helps them save money and energy by providing no-cost, energy-efficient home improvements,” said Dan Rendler, director, Customer Programs & Assistance, SoCalGas. “Even If you made home improvements before, you may qualify for more.”
The no-cost energy efficiency upgrades include door weather-stripping and caulking, attic insulation, low-flow showerheads, and assessments for leaking water heaters.
A key goal of the expanded program is to save at least 10 percent above the current energy savings average in selected areas. To achieve the greatest energy savings, SoCalGas will target properties that use the most energy first.” Continue reading on the OC Breeze website.
