Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) release the California Advanced Homes Program and is known as the CAHP Program. This program is developed to give builder’s an incentive for energy efficient homes. As a result, the program focuses on the Energy Design Rating (EDR) which is compiled in the 2016 Title 24 Part 6 Energy Calculations. This is completed by a Certified Energy Analyst (CEA).  The number is used to configure the CAHP EDR.  The closer the home’s EDR is to zero, the more incentives the builder receives. To qualify the minimum CAHP EDR for the climate zone is 48 for coastal homes and 44 for inland homes. There are also energy efficiency measures eligible for additional incentive kickers (per home) to lower your EDR. Other good news…the 2017 program allows per plan to qualify and not entire projects!
