The City of Palo Alto encourages home builders in Palo Alto to build more efficient residences than is required by state and local codes and ordinances. To qualify for this program, new homes must exceed the requirements set in Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations by at least 20%. Rebates are calculated as a combination of both kWh and therm savings. A rebate worksheet is available on the program website which provides specific guidelines on how to calculate the potential incentive for new construction projects.
