THE ELECTRIFY SANTA MONICA REBATE PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS. FUNDING FOR THE PROGRAM HAS BEEN EXHAUSTED.
We are excited to work with residents who have taken advantage of the program to electrify their homes and lives. We look forward to reaching more residents with electrification rebates as additional funding becomes available.
For questions please contact either Peter Roquemore, email@example.com, or Elias Platte-Bermeo, firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 existing building electrification by offering rebates on electric appliances such as heat pump HVAC systems, heat pump water heaters, heat pump clothes dryers, induction cooktops, electrical panel upgrades, e-bikes and electric vehicle chargers through the Electrify Santa Monica rebate program.
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. You can view available Electrify Santa Monica rebates here.
For information on state and federal incentives for electrification projects, which can be stacked with Electrify Santa Monica, 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 Switchison.org.
Applications will be accepted until rebate funds are exhausted.
If you are installing a heat pump water heater or heat pump HVAC, please note that applications are open as of September 6, 2023 for the TECH Clean California Program, which is offering substantially higher rebates than the City's program. Find out more here.
