You may also qualify for an extra $1,000 in cash rewards from the Cool Savers Rewards Program. Qualifying for the up to $1,000 in prize money is a three-step process for existing PG&E customers:


  1. 1

    Receive up to $1,800 in instant rebates, to reduce the cost of a new AC unit or AC/furnace package – or – purchase the low-cost comfort package option to increase your overall home performance, installed by a participating contractor.

How To Qualify for the Cool Savers Rewards Program

There are two ways to meet the minimum requirements for the Cool Savers Rewards Program, with Sierra Pacific Home & Comfort, Inc. your participating contractor here in El Dorado and Placer County.

Energy Saving Option One is to work with your participating Cool Savers contractor to install the following three heating and cooling upgrades:

Air Conditioning or AC/Furnace

Replace your current AC system or AC/furnace systems to increase reliability and provide maximum energy savings.

Smart Thermostat

Replace your current thermostat with an eligible smart thermostat to take full control over your home energy usage, from anywhere in the world using your smartphone.

Duct Sealing

Leaky ducts waste energy, and can significantly decrease the air quality in your home. Duct sealing is essential to getting the most out of your energy efficient heating and cooling equipment.

Energy Saving Option Two is The Comfort Package Option, a lower cost option that focuses on insulation and building sealing to maximize your comfort and reduce your overall energy consumption.
