TECH incentives are still available for HPWH in Southern California Gas territory and for HPWH and HP HVAC in Southwest Gas territory. Due to the higher-than-anticipated response, TECH incentives are temporarily suspended in all other territories.

Single-family:

For single-family, in territories where funding is still available, earn $1,000 for any HP HVAC installation, and $3,100 or $1,000 for any HPWH installation—depending on gas or electric replacement, respectively. TECH’s incentives will be flat and able to layer with all other programs as long as they are in a TECH-eligible zip code. For more details on single-family incentive amounts, see the General Measure Tables Flyer.

Single-family incentive rates are changing. Please reference this link for more details about these program updates.

Multi-family:

TECH Clean California multifamily incentives will be available to contractors installing heat pump HVAC systems and heat pump water heaters for qualifying customers throughout California. Incentives are available for both in-unit and common area applications through the Multifamily Incentive Reservation Form.

The below programs offer incentives directly through the TECH Application Clearinghouse on the Iris Platform. This means that contractors do not need to apply for rebates in a separate location, streamlining their experience

Programs include:

Program Name: BayREN Heat Pump Water Heater Contractor Incentive Program

Program Description: The BayREN HPWH contractor incentive program pays $1,000 directly to qualifying contractors for the installation of HPWHs to select Community Choice Aggregator (CCA) customers. Enrolled CCAs include East Bay Community Energy (EBCE), MCE, Silicon Valley Power (SVP), and CleanPowerSF (CPSF). Incentives are only available for customers switching from a gas water heater to a HPWH. More information and the contractor enrollment form can be found at the BAYREN Heat Pump Water Heater (HPWH) Incentive for Participating Contractors website.

Program Name: Central Coast Community Energy Electrify Your Home

Program Description: CCCE’s Electrify Your Home program offers rebates for customers switching from a gas appliance to a heat pump appliance to serve their space or water heating needs. Available incentives can be found at the Central Coast Community Energy website.

TECH Clean California incentives are available for any projects that fall within gas Investor-Owned Utility (IOU) service territory. The gas IOUs within California include Pacific Gas & Electric (“PG&E”), Southern California Gas (“SoCal Gas”), San Diego Gas & Electric (“SDG&E”), and Southwest Gas (“SW Gas”).

Project sites do not have to be gas or electric IOU customers to be eligible for incentives—TECH Clean California incentive eligibility is determined solely by the project site’s zip code. However, customers located in the cities of Long Beach, Catalina Island, and Palo Alto are not eligible for incentives even if their zip codes are included on the list of eligible zip codes. All references to electric service territories are provided for general location information.

Please note, there is currently only budget available to support the following territories:

Single Family
