The Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) offers The Home Energy Upgrade Financing (HEUF) program to its residential customers interested in making energy efficient improvements to their homes. Customers can qualify for loans ranging from $2,500 to $20,000 to purchase and install energy-efficient upgrades. Terms range from one to twelve years. Eligible technologies include: Water heaters, refrigerated air conditioners, evaporative coolers, double-paned windows, building and equipment insulation, roofing, spa/pool heaters, insulated plantation shutters, and permanently installed natural gas barbecues.
