Energy Programs Coming April 2019
Powering Clean Energy Programs
Through education and financial incentives, MBCP’s Energy Programs are designed to assist our community with the switch from fossil fuel-powered sources to clean energy alternatives.
Together, by providing businesses and residents with carbon-free electricity, our community has already taken a big step toward continued economic and environmental progress for our region. MBCP Energy Programs possess the potential for all of us to accomplish even more together.
Plus an additional $6 million secured for the Monterey Bay Region from the California Energy Commission for California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP). More on this program below.
Reinvesting in Our Community
As a public, not-for-profit agency, MBCP is committed to supporting the economic vitality of the Monterey Bay region. Together, by providing businesses and residents with carbon-free electricity, our community has taken a big step toward continued economic and environmental progress for our region.
Based on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions measures, focusing our programs on the transportation and building sectors will provide the greatest impact in reducing GHG emissions.
Coming April 2019
MBCP Solar Program for Affordable Housing
In partnership with GRID Alternatives, MBCP is providing funds that will allow 20 income-qualified homeowners to receive free solar for their home in 2019. Homeowners will also save thousands of dollars in electricity costs using solar energy.
MBCP’s Solar Program for Affordable Housing is available for a limited time exclusively for low-to-moderate income homeowners, and the application process is already underway. To see if your family qualifies for the program, please call 831-784-8549.
MBCP Electric Vehicle (EV) Incentives Program
Available Spring 2019, MBCP is offering EV incentives.
Currently, EVs make up only 1% of all vehicles in the Monterey Bay Region. In order to meet statewide goals and continue shaping the Central Coast as an innovative leader in sustainability, our region’s EV ownership must grow to 15% by 2030. More to come about our EV Incentives Program soon.
Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Program
Beginning Summer 2019, Tri-County non-residential customers who are considering installing or upgrading EV charging stations will have access to valuable resources and incentives.
Businesses interested in accelerating the rate of EV adoption in our region – through accommodating locals who live and work sustainably, as well as visitors who travel and stay sustainably – are encouraged to contact MBCP’s Programs Department: firstname.lastname@example.org
