  • Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) is a simple, powerful tool that lets homeowners and businesses finance the entire cost of energy-and safety-related home improvements, such as heating and cooling upgrades, energy-efficient roofs and windows, home solar, water-saving measures, and seismic retrofits.

  • Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) is a community choice energy (CCE) program that offers cleaner energy at lower rates than PG&E. Residents of San Mateo County were automatically been enrolled in ECOplus, but can opt up to ECO100 to power homes with 100% renewable energy for $0.01/kWh more.
  • Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency (BAWSCA) partners with water districts in the Bay area to ensure the region’s reliable supply of high-quality water at a fair price. Benefits for residents include rebates up to $100 for the purchase and installation of qualifying rain barrels and free sustainable landscaping classes designed to introduce homeowners, commercial property managers, landscape service providers, and others to the concepts of water-efficient and sustainable landscaping.

  • The Department of Energy, Weatherization Assistance Program (DOE WAP) works to deliver energy conservation services to low-income communities to reduce the heating and cooling costs for low-income families by improving the energy efficiency of their homes and ensuring their health and safety.
