Did you know that home owners can save hundred
and even thousands by using city and county rebates?
Let me tell you a really quick story. Last week my toilet started to run and a day or two later the lid came loose. I researched the toilet and found that it needed a $30 flange and a $30 lid. Also, the toilet was a 2.2 gallon tank which was considered a water hog by today's standards. So, I decided that instead of paying $60.00 for toilet parts, that I would do the right thing and replace it with a water efficient one.
While looking at toilets the guy at Home Depot says, "Did you know that you can get a $175 rebate, which would make this toilet only $25?" Sure enough, yesterday I got my $175 check in the mail and the toilet only cost me $23.14.
So, after thinking about it I wanted to make sure everyone knew about the available rebates for energy and water upgrades! First you can go to www.PGE.com, www.SMUD.com, www.PCWA.net & www.CityofSacramento.org to find most of these details and download any required forms.

If you are considering any major renovation projects like windows, siding or roof then there are tons of rebate options that you should consider! Also, if you have ever considered solar then I definitely have a go to person who can help you!
There are possibly more rebates available and not everyone is eligible for a full rebate, however this should give you a general ideal of what's available.
