Residential programs and rebates

Reinvesting in the community

In addition to providing clean energy at lower rates, Peninsula Clean Energy invests in local energy programs to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve the San Mateo County Community. Learn about all of our programs here.

These programs are in three areas:

Buildings

The switch to clean electricity is on. In fact, an increasing number of jurisdictions are enacting reach codes for all new construction to include safe, healthy, all-electric designs. We are assisting San Mateo County residents by providing information, programs and rebates for electric space and water heating, dryers, and stoves.

  • All-electric homes – learn about the benefits and next steps to power your home with clean electricity
  • HPWH rebates – find out about heat pump water heaters and the available rebates
  • Reach codes – information about what is happening in your area with all-electric building requirements
  • Refrigerator recycling – we arrange to pick up your old inefficient or non-working refrigerator and you get $35.

Transportation

Gas-powered transportation is the single largest source of carbon emissions in San Mateo County. Our programs and rebates are helping to accelerate the transition to electric vehicles (EVs).

  • About EVs – learn about electric vehicles and charging
  • Used EVs – Rebates to reduce the cost to purchase used EVs
  • New EVs – Rebates to reduce the cost to purchase new EVs

Resiliency

Backup power is needed by our customers in the event of grid outages. Our resiliency plan prioritizes medically vulnerable residents in high fire areas that have high chance of power shutoffs, and critical facilities. We also have a rebate to help homeowners  install solar panels + battery back-up.

Supporting Innovation

Peninsula Clean Energy has pilot projects that foster new technologies and develop new partnerships to increase access to affordable and sustainable clean energy solutions.
