Electrify San José Rebates

CASH REBATES UP TO $6,000 for San José residents to switch to an electric heat pump!

Electrify San José is a new program that provides rebates for San José households to switch from a natural gas water heater to an electric heat pump water heater. Current California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) and Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) customers are eligible for additional rebate amounts.
