TECH Clean California is a $120 million initiative designed to help advance the state’s mission to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045. This will be done by driving the market adoption of low-emissions space and water heating technologies for existing single and multifamily homes across California—a notable source of the state’s carbon footprint. Additionally, 40% of program benefits will be targeted towards low-income and disadvantaged communities. The initiative was developed as part of California Senate Bill 1477 and is funded by California gas corporation ratepayers under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.

TECH Clean California incentives are available statewide as of December 7, 2021. Enrolled contractors installing Heat Pump HVAC systems and Heat Pump Water Heaters can earn at least $3,000 per installation, with opportunities to earn up to $6,600 in select regions where utilities have partnered with TECH Clean California.

This new incentive is designed to dovetail with the existing Comfortable Home Rebate program:

Editor’s note: The term rolling blackouts is used incorrectly in the video and often in other places as well (news reports, television, etc).  A rolling blackout is an uncontrolled interruption in power service. Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) and other non-rolling blackouts are termed “rotating” blackouts.  They are intentional and controlled by the utility.
