Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) offers rebates for residential gas customers who install energy efficient furnaces or water heaters in homes. More information and applications for rebates are available at the program web site and customers can apply for the rebates online through the e-Rebate system. Participating homeowners should review equipment and program requirements on all program application forms to ensure eligibility for rebates. More information on these incentives can be found at the above program web site.

Residential New Construction Rebates are available for builders of residential dwellings that incorporate energy efficient features. Incentives are available if builders meet the Energy Star requirements – 15% more efficient than required by the 2005 Title 24 Energy Code. For those homes that do not meet the Energy Star label but still include energy conserving features, PG&E offers prescriptive rebates to builders.
