From Fall 2011 until Spring 2012, SEI served as the implementer for the Home Energy Tune-Up program, a program in Fresno, Kern, Kings, and Tulare Counties. Home Energy Tun-Up promotes residential energy efficiency upgrades, funded by the California Energy Commission. The program provides free home energy surveys to homeowners, resources for homeowners to learn about rebates and financing for home energy upgrades, and significant training opportunities for local contractors to become BPI-certified, which equips them to perform home energy surveys and offer substantial rebates to homeowners.
The Home Energy Tune-Up program is offered in partnership with Energy Upgrade California.
SEI’s role was to serve as a coordinating agent to support the program achieve its participation goals. In this roles SEI staff followed-up with homeowners to determine what they learned from their free energy survey, and what actions they planned to take. SEI program staff also provided resources for contractors and homeowners to learn about rebates and financing options for home energy upgrades. In addition, SEI helped to coordinate Building Performance Institute trainings for contractors, and markets the program overall, to ensure that available funds are utilized by homeowners to make energy upgrades over the course of the project.
