Please see "SoCalGas - California Advanced Homes Incentives (California)" record for more information.

SoCalGas offers an incentive for home builders to build homes which exceed 2008 Title 24 standards by 15%. The program is open to all single-family and multi-family new construction projects. Incentives are offered through two avenues: a performance based approach and a measure based approach.

The performance based approach is designed to encourage builders to construct single-family and multi-family dwellings that use at least 15% less energy than Title 24 standards. The incentive payments are based on the final 2008 T-24 reports created and signed by a Certified Energy Plans Examiners (CEPE) and verified by a third party HERS Rater. Incentives increase incrementally as the performance of the structure increases.
