TECH Clean California Initiative Overview


For 3CE customers who live in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara, 3C-REN Home Energy Savings programs help residents ​and multifamily property owners of the tri-county region save money and make their homes healthier with energy efficient upgrades.

From heating and cooling to building envelope and water heating upgrades, 3C-REN incentives enable deeper energy and cost savings.

The Energy-Smart Homes Program promotes adoption of advanced energy measures and the transition to all-electric construction. The whole building electrification program aligns with California’s 2022 code and state efficiency decarbonization goals and trajectories, and provides property owners incentives for single family, duplex, townhome, ADU, or multifamily low-rise electrification alterations.

This program stacks with 3CE’s Electrify Your Home Program and TECH Clean California rebates.
