Money for Energy Efficiency: ME2 for You
Money for Energy Efficiency (ME2) Program was a limited-time-only program that provided cash incentives for energy efficiency upgrades in Berkeley homes and businesses. The ME2 program was funded by $1,013,500 in federal stimulus money awarded to Berkeley from the U.S. Department of Energy.
ME2 incentives were used for comprehensive energy assessments and the resulting upgrades. It was developed as a pilot program to bring the latest in building science research to policy design and implementation. It is based on a whole building approach that utilizes a comprehensive energy assessment to identify and prioritize opportunities for energy savings.
The ME2 program has concluded. It ran from July 2010 to September 2012. Energy efficiency rebates are still available through Energy Upgrade California (www.energyupgradeca.org). Current rebate and incentive program information is tailored by county.
