Act fast! SoCalREN is offering BONUS cash incentives for energy efficiency projects completed in 2022!
Calling all SoCalREN public agencies! Complete an energy efficiency project this year and SoCalREN will cover 50% of eligible project costs OR provide 150% of our standard incentive rates (depending on the energy upgrades you choose). Contact your SoCalREN Project Manager TODAY to get the ball rolling on this limited-time offer!
You read that right! For a limited time, SoCalREN is making energy efficiency projects more affordable by ⚡supercharging⚡ its incentives. Any energy efficiency project completed this year is eligible for 50% of eligible project costs covered by SoCalREN or 150% of standard SoCalREN incentive rates.
Not only will completing efficiency projects this year make your agency eligible to receive our ⚡supercharged⚡ incentives, it will help you get ahead of the Title 24 changes starting January 1, 2023. Title 24 will require higher efficiency standards, meaning fewer savings are eligible for incentives. Some measures previously eligible for incentives will now be required by code. Some examples:
- Heat pump water heaters will be required for school buildings in certain climate zones;
- LED tubes and high bay lighting will have higher occupancy sensor, daylighting, demand response requirements as well as more stringent controls requirements leading to higher project costs, and;
- HVAC economizer controls will be required across more systems and no longer eligible for incentives.
SoCalREN can help you get ahead of these changes and ensure you’re on track to bring your facility equipment up to the new Title 24 standards.
