Single family homeowners in San Francisco's PG&E territory can receive Green Home Assessments, providing detailed reports showing energy loss, heat tests, and a list of improvements that will achieve the energy savings goals for San Francisco's Home Improvement and Performance Program. Improvements through this program might include improving insulation, air and duct sealing, and improved heating and cooling systems.
