California Hosting Webinar on New Low Income Weatherization Program (Energy Cost Reduction)

California’s new Low Income Weatherization Program (LIWP) offers financial incentives to cover a significant portion of energy efficiency and solar installation costs for eligible projects. LIWP funds will typically cover approximately 30-80% of the efficiency project costs and 50-100% of solar PV systems, depending on the scope of work, project size, projected GHG reductions, and other project variables. For LIWP to provide the highest value to your projects, enroll early in the predevelopment stage to get help planning the scope of work. LIWP incentives may be integrated as part of a rehabilitation project or used for a standalone energy retrofit project.
