At our June 27, 2019 meeting we welcomed Sally Schifman, Program Manager and Andrew Beecher, Associate Environmental Planner, both with Rincon Consultants, which is partnering with the Del Mar Community Connections (DMCC) program to help local seniors use the SDG&E Energy Efficiency Rebate and Incentive Programs to maximize their energy efficiency and save some money. DMCC will help seniors take advantage of: i) Instant in-store rebates on efficient appliances; ii) Energy savings assistance program (ESAP) that helps renters and homeowners audit their energy use; iii) the Advanced Home Upgrade Program to defray costs of installing energy efficient upgrades; iv) AC Quality Care program to inspect air conditioning units; v) AC Saver, which allows SDG&E to turn off or reduce AC run time; vi) Solar Rebates and Incentives Programs; and vii) Residential lighting program that offers discounted energy-efficient LED lamps. If you know a Del Mar senior who could benefit from these programs, or would like a free in-home energy audit, please have them call 858.730.6131.
