Free energy savings programs for landlords & property managers
at no cost to you or your tenants!
We are a licensed HVAC, insulation, and weatherization contractor. We have over 20 years of local experience providing free energy-saving improvements for residential facilities, funded by local electric and gas utilities.
UTILITIES: Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Gas (SoCalGas), Southern California Edison (SCE) and Southwest Gas (SWG) have approved, selected and contracted with QCS to help implement their no-cost energy upgrade programs, including several directed to helping tenants and multi-family home occupants. Both master-metered (landlord pays utility bill) and individually-metered (occupant pays utility bill) households are eligible.
LOCATION: Quality Conservation and Free Energy Savings Company provide these upgrades for Landlords and Property Managers whose residential facilities are located in PG&E’s Bay Area (San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, San Joaquin, Sonoma, Napa and Solano Counties) or in the Greater Los Angeles Area served by the other three utilities (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties).
TARGETING MODERATE AND LOWER-INCOME HOUSEHOLDS: All four utilities fund the Energy Savings Assistance Program (ESAP), targeting to help households who are participating in a qualifying public assistance program, or whose household income falls in the moderate and lower income ranges (up to ~$75,000 for a family of four, +/- $12,850 for each household member above or below that).
YOUR PERMISSION: To participate, renters must have a permission agreement signed by the property owner or landlord. A single form may cover one or all of the occupied units. Landlords may reject any individual improvement(s) before they are offered to the renters. Click below for the permission agreement(s):
COORDINATION: Our licensed Energy and Outreach Specialists will work with you to coordinate the household visits to minimize the time required for us to qualify and sign-up the participants and to install their free upgrades. If desired, we can assign multiple crews to complete the work in a timely manner. We can provide you with sample notices or flyers explaining the program. And, if requested, we will provide you with a list of improvements installed in each rental unit after completion.
