How to Submit an Electrify Santa Monica Rebate Application

The Electrify Santa Monica Rebate Program is currently NOT accepting new applications as we roll into the new fiscal year. Please check back in at a later date.

We are excited to offer rebates that will help you to electrify your daily life and live more sustainably. Electrifying is one of the most impactful steps you can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution in and outside of your home. 

The City is supporting transportation electrification by offering rebates on e-bikes and electric vehicle chargers and supporting every resident in making the switch to induction cooking by offering a rebate on portable induction cooktops through the Electrify Santa Monica rebate program.  You can view available Electrify Santa Monica rebates here.  

Higher rebate amounts are available for qualifying low-income residents to switch out gas equipment for new all-electric equipment. To learn about low-income rebate eligibility, click here.

Each applicant is eligible for one rebate per appliance type per address, allowing you to get money back on a range of upgrades. 

For information on state and federal incentives for electrification projects, which can be stacked with Electrify Santa Monica rebates, click here.  

Not sure if you should make the switch to an all-electric appliance? To learn more about the benefits of making the switch to all-electric appliances in your home, visit

Applications will be accepted until rebate funds are exhausted.  

If you are interested in installing a heat pump water heater or heat pump HVAC system, you can find incentives through the TECH Clean California Program.
