South Coast AQMD Provides Nearly $1 Million for Energy Upgrades at Homes in Eastern Coachella Valley

South Coast AQMD has made nearly one million dollars from enforcement settlements, mitigation fees and other available sources for the Coachella Valley Residential Energy Efficiency Retrofit Program. The program provides energy efficiency home upgrades at single family homes in disadvantaged communities at no charge to the homeowner.

The program is targeted to homes located in communities most impacted by air pollution and include the Cities of Indio and Coachella and unincorporated communities of Carver Tract, Mecca and North Shore.

The upgrades will be conducted by ALCAL Specialty Contracting in partnership with Johns Manville, Comite Civico del Valle, Imperial Irrigation District and Southern California Gas. ALCAL will install upgrades to make homes more energy efficient and improve air quality including replacing lightbulbs with LEDs, installing smart thermostats, insulation of attics, and air sealing to reduce the amount of air that leaks in and out of homes. The program was highlighted at an event with Riverside County Supervisor and South Coast AQMD Governing Board Member V. Manuel Perez and Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia.

Additional funding is available for qualified homes. For more information, call ALCAL at 760-904-2538.
