Make the most of your Prop 39 dollars


A key component of having your Energy Expenditure Plans (EEP) approved is a strong savings-to-investment ratio for the measures in your plan. PG&E offers rebates on key products and targeted incentives for schools. The rebates can decrease the cost of the measures in your plan. PG&E can help you take advantage of the rebates that can bring you closer to the optimal savings-to-investment ratio.
