FREE ENERGY SAVINGS PROGRAMS FOR LANDLORDS & PROPERTY MANAGERS

AT NO COST TO YOU OR YOUR TENANTS!

QUALITY CONSERVATION SERVICES: Quality Conservation is an award-winning licensed heating and air conditioning, insulation and weatherization contractor. We have over 20 years of local experience providing FREE energy savings improvements for residential facilities, funded by local electric and gas utilities. A participating residence must be at least 5 years old and not participated in a similar utility-sponsored free weatherization program after 2012.

UTILITIES: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Gas (SoCalGas), Southern California Edison (SCE) and Southwest Gas (SWG) have approved, selected and contracted with Quality Conservation to help implement their FREE energy improvements programs, including several directed to helping tenants and multi-family home occupants. Both master-metered (landlord pays utility bill) and individually-metered (occupant pays utility bill) households are eligible.

LOCATION: Quality Conservation provides these FREE improvements for Landlords and Property Managers whose residential facilities are located in PG&E’s Bay Area (San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Sonoma, Napa and Solano Counties) or in the Greater Los Angeles Area served by the other three utilities (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties).

TARGETING MODERATE- AND LOWER-INCOME HOUSEHOLDS: All four utilities fund an Energy Savings Assistance Program (ESAP) targeted to helping households who are participating in a qualifying public assistance program, or whose household income falls in the moderate and lower income ranges (up to ~$50,000 for family of four, +/- $8,600 for each household member above or below that).

TARGETING Pacific Gas and Electric Company RENTERS AND MIDDLE INCOME HOUSEHOLDS: Only Pacific Gas and Electric Company funds the Custom Home Energy Solutions (CHES) program for households ineligible for Energy Savings Assistance Program who are Renters, or who report middle-incomes (up to~$100,000 for family of four, +/- $17,000 for each household member above or below that), or whose primary language is non-English.

YOUR PERMISSION: To participate, renters must have a permission agreement signed by the property owner or landlord. A single form may cover one or all of the occupied units. Landlords may reject any individual improvement(s) before they are offered to the renters. Click below for the permission agreement(s):
