Green EconoME has joined SoCal REN Program as a partnering contractor to create exciting opportunities for our multi-family clients!

What is SoCalREN?

SoCalREN, a service of Los Angeles County, was created to help building owners take advantage of incentives that are being offered for installing energy efficiency retrofits in the SoCalGas® and/or Southern California Edison territory. These retrofits can help building owners and tenants save greatly on energy costs, and incentives can be as much as 60%-75% of the total project cost depending on the energy measures chosen and the unit count of the building. 

Green EconoME will specifically be working with multi-family building owners on two different paths that SoCalREN offers:

The Common Area Path: The common area path is a more accessible path for multi-family building owners to take, as it involves installing retrofits in building common areas (common area lighting being one of the retrofit requirements) and requires only 4% energy savings across two different energy measures.  

The Custom Path: The custom path includes a more extensive project because retrofits can be done in any part of the building, which can also provide substantial energy savings. If a project receives 10% or more energy savings, then the project will be considered on the custom path. 

Who is eligible for SoCalREN Incentives?

To participate in the Program, the multi-family project must meet the following criteria:

  • Be in a property served by either Southern California Edison (SCE) or SoCalGas®.
  • Be in a building that contains a minimum of five connected units.
  • Include at least three energy efficiency measures for Custom Path, two for Common Area Path.
  • Achieve a minimum 10% improvement in energy efficiency for Custom Path, 4% for Common Area Path.
  • Reach project completion and approval within 12 months of the date of reservation.

Why use the SoCalREN Program?

Building owners will find that when installing energy efficiency measures, they can: 

  • Save on utility bills
  • Enjoy reduced operating and maintenance costs
  • Increase tenant comfort
  • Contribute to regional environmental improvement goals

Joining Green EconoME and SoCalREN to install these measures gives building owners access to incentives and financing they may otherwise have not known about.
