Enroll Quickly and Easily
The California Energy Commission is currently accepting grant applications on a first-come, first-served basis. Enroll with us as soon as possible to assess your HVAC and plumbing needs at no cost to you. Working with Veregy will help you be one of the first to apply.
The program provides grants to assess, maintain, adjust, repair, or replace heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and replace outdated plumbing fixtures. This includes continuous CO2 monitoring to ensure proper ventilation is maintained.
Licensed professionals, qualified adjusting, and qualified testing personnel are required when performing an assessment, and the Veregy team exceeds these requirements.
Receive an Additional 20% in Funding
20% in contingency funding is available for repairs, upgrades or replacements necessary to make system functional or improve energy efficiency. However, the initial grant awards do not include additional funding for repairs, upgrades or replacements above the 20% contingency amount. While concerning for some, the Veregy team understands how to make this work for any size project to ensure you’re grant dollars pay for the things you need.
