PG&E is issuing a Request for Abstracts (RFA) for an equity-based energy efficiency program for the Residential sector where the primary purpose is to achieve increased participation in EE with a focus on building electrification by hard-to-reach or low-moderate income customers and disadvantaged communities and provide targeted services to customers and regions which don’t historically receive it in advancement of the Commission’s Environmental and Social Justice (ESJ) Action Plan. In accordance with D.18-01-004, the Residential Equity Program will follow a two-stage solicitation process. Interested bidders participate in an RFA. Then, shortlisted bidders will be invited to participate in the Request for Proposal (RFP).
