SCEEP Offers the “Comprehensive Mobile Home” Program in South Santa Barbara County
Free energy efficiency upgrades offered to mobile/manufactured home residents starting August 15
Santa Barbara, CA, August 5, 2011 – A leader in the continuing effort to make the southern Santa Barbara County region as energy-efficient as possible, the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership (SCEEP) will sponsor the Comprehensive Mobile Home Program on August 15.
The Comprehensive Mobile Home Program is administered by Southern California Edison (SCE) and Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission through a contract awarded to Synergy Companies, an energy management vendor, to help utility customers achieve their energy-savings goals.
This unique program not only provides recommendations that can help customers save energy and money, it also offers free energy-efficient equipment and free installation. Some of the free items that eligible customers may qualify for include interior and exterior compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), low-flow shower heads, faucet aerators, refrigerator replacement, carbon monoxide testing and much more! Synergy Companies also helps mobile home owners identify and reduce heat and air leaks in the building envelope with proper sealing and insulation.
Synergy Companies will also provide information to income-qualified mobile home owners about income assistance programs offered by the utilities. Through these special programs, income-qualified households may be eligible to receive a reduction of up to 20% on their gas and electric bills.
All products and services are offered at no cost to the customer with funding provided by California utility ratepayers. This program is available on a first-come, first served basis to qualifying customers until allocated funds are depleted and may be modified or terminated without notice. Customer eligibility is based upon prior participation records, and some programs require income screening, proof of home ownership documentation, and climate zone restrictions. Participants must live in Southern Santa Barbara County and be customers of Southern California Edison and Southern California Gas Co. Additional terms and conditions apply.
