Recurve, a San Francisco-based provider of home performance services, has said that it will provide free audits and deferred remodeling payments for residents of Berkeley who are eligible for the city's new rebate program, Money for Energy Efficiency (ME2), that launched early this month. In conjunction with the city rebate offer, PG&E is offering incentives as well.
The ME2 program is a component of the city’s Climate Action Plan and is designed to help the community achieve a 33% reduction in green house gas emissions by 2020. The City of Berkeley expects that residents and business owners will save over $100m in net energy savings by 2020.
ME2, combined with additional rebates from PG&E, will provide up to $8,500 per unit for homeowners eligible for the program.
Marcia Kadanoff, VP of marketing at Recurve, said: “We are pleased to see more and more incentive programs become available that will help homeowners achieve energy efficiency. The City of Berkeley and its residents have been at the forefront of effecting positive change for the environment and we look forward to working with them in helping to achieve their climate action goals.”
