Incentives for Fire Rebuilds in Northern California

Overview   |   Program Requirements & Incentives   |   Resources

Customers participating in the Advanced Energy Rebuild (AER) initiative will receive incentives to build more energy efficient homes. This program also provides incentives for manufactured homes and Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), commonly known as granny units or casitas.

For eligibility and incentive information, please refer to the program handbook. An updated handbook will be linked shortly for manufactured homes and homes permitted on or after January 1, 2020. If you would like a program team member to contact you regarding your project, please fill out our contact form at the bottom of this page.


Building a site-built home and ready to apply? Click your respective “Apply Now” button below. There are two separate applications for site-built homes. The appropriate application for you will depend on when you applied for your building permit. Feel free to contact the AER program team if you are not sure which code your project is permitted under. Please note, you will not be able to save your application and come back to it later once you begin filling it out. Please be sure you have your Certified Energy Analyst and contractor contact information handy. The second part of your application is the document upload page. It may take up to 3 minutes for your application to be submitted once you click “next”. All documents on this application checklist are required for us to reserve your incentives. If you do not have all of the documentation available when you apply, you can submit your remaining documentation directly to your application processor via email when it is available.

Please do not submit more than one application.
