Always check your local utility’s web site for rebates before you buy a new item. We recently bought a new dishwasher that had a $50 utility company rebate that was not advertised by the store. They fulfilled the rebate in only 2 weeks. Green your home and get cash back. Most rebates run through December 31 or while funding is available.

You can also call PG&E and ask for a Smart Home Rebate Booklet or check out their Flex your power website.

Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credit

Be sure to also take advantage of the Federal Energy Efficiency Tax Credit. This Federal tax credit can save you money in addition to your utility companies’ promotions. It applies to many items including: Wind TurbinesGeoThermal Heat PumpSolar panels.

Purcell Murray distributes appliances in California and has Bosch rebates, Thermador rebates, and rebates for other brands.

Plug in Electric Vehicle Discounts

Pacific Gas & Electric has a new E-9 rate plan for plug in electric vehicle or electric car owners. A second power meter may need to be installed for households in which their plug-in electric vehicle charging significantly impacts their daily energy usage.

PG&E Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) to Lower Energy Costs

Energy

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) has recently added the voluntary Critical Peak Pricing (CPP) program that gives lower energy rates on non-CPP event days (non peak days) in exchange for higher rates on CPP event days. (high use Summer days)

You agree to pay higher peak rates of 60 cents a kilowatt-hour on no more than 15 days a year in exchange for a 3 cent discount on all other energy use times.

This is designed for businesses using more than 200 kW per month who can pull back energy use during peak days. The program has resulted in lower bills for some big customers like datacenters.

PG&E Climate Smart Program has ended

Bamboo Forest

PG&E has a ClimateSmart program that allows customers to pay extra to offset the greenhouse gas emissions from energy they use. It cost me about $78 last year. “100% of your payment for the ClimateSmart program will go to directly funding new greenhouse gas emission reduction projects in California. ” Over 30,000 people participate in this program.

The PG&E ClimateSmart program will end on December 31, 2011 because far fewer people signed up than expected. The program attracted around 30,000 people, much lower than the projected 168,000 customers. The program did reduce Greenhouse gas emissions by 1.3 million metric tons. This experiment benefited the Environment, but ultimately showed that few people are willing to pay to do this.

Other utility company in other regions may have similar programs.

    The UK Government introduced its Boiler Scrappage Scheme last week: potentially thousands of homeowners with inefficient old boilers will get £400 vouchers to spend on new replacement ones. The money can also go towards a solar hot water system: if it’s an advanced one, such as the LaZer2 designed by SolarUK, the combination of this and an energy efficient boiler should be a winning one in terms of supplying a household’s hot water requirements for most of the year without reliance on fossil fuels.
