Incentives for Fire Rebuilds in Northern California

As part of its Respond, Rebuild, Resilience commitment to meeting the challenges of extreme weather resulting from climate change, PG&E has increased financial incentives for energy-efficient construction practices in homes rebuilt after a wildfire.

North Valley Energy Watch and Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) have joined efforts to help homeowners affected by the October 2018 Camp and Carr wildfires rebuild energy efficient, sustainable homes. The program is an enhancement to PG&E’s long-standing California Advanced Homes Program, and offers two incentive packages tailored to Butte and Shasta Counties.

Customers participating in the Advanced Energy Rebuild initiative will receive incentives to adopt building practices now that will become required for all new construction in 2020.  These new financial incentives cover some, if not all, of the additional cost of higher-efficiency appliances and building improvements like insulation, advanced windows, air sealing, and heat pumps for water and space heating. The result is a more comfortable and sustainable building with lower utility bills.

California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards, called “Title 24, Part 6,” guide residential and nonresidential building and construction across the state. The standards help to lower energy costs and reduce greenhouse gases associated with the building. Single family homes built to the upcoming 2020 requirements will use approximately 20 percent less energy than homes built to the 2016 standard. The Advanced Energy Rebuild initiative offers customers the opportunity to receive incentives to take these steps a year early, resulting in support for their rebuild and a high performance, low energy use home.

Incentives are available to serve customers with destroyed homes or businesses in 10 Northern California counties – including Mendocino, Sonoma, Lake, Napa, Solano, Butte, Yuba, Plumas, Shasta, and Nevada – where wildfires occurred in 2017 and 2018. These customers are eligible for incentives if they pull a permit for a new building by the end of 2019, regardless of where they rebuild.  For more information, plaese follow the links below.
