Incentivizing the Electrification of California Homes and Businesses
Caliber worked with a team of nonprofits, industry, and environmental organizations as government advisors to pass legislation to allocate approximately $44 million for incentives for HPWHs as part of California’s Self Generation Incentive Program (SGIP).
As clean tech business advocates, A. O. Smith and Caliber then led an effort with this coalition and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to design a workable incentive program that would provide an up to $7,300 incentive payment for installing HPWHs. As of 2022, the HPWH Program incentive amount is currently $84 million by the California Public Utilities Commission.
