Energy Efficiency Event THIS SATURDAY

Tri-Valley Homeowners: Don’t miss this event!

Energy Upgrade California is a one-stop-shop for home improvement projects that can save you money, lower your energy use, and make your home healthier and more comfortable. Homeowners can get up to $4,000 back in rebates when you make your home more energy efficient.

A new program called Energize for the Prize also donates money to local schools when you get an energy upgrade! DPIE is participating in this program, and we can receive $250 when Dublin homeowners get an energy upgrade.  Learn more at www.energizefortheprize.org.

Please join us for this FREE event where you’ll meet local contractors who do this type of work, and hear from a local homeowner who has been through the process. Now is the time – before the return of cold weather and big heating bills – to make those energy-saving home improvements you’ve been putting off.
