Sustainability and protecting the environment have been on PACE’s agenda since 1981. PACE Energy, in collaboration with its community partners – the State of California Department of Community Services & Development, Southern California Gas Company, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, and Southern California Edison – provides outreach, energy and environmental conservation education, weatherization services, and assistance with utility bill payments to low-income individuals and families throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)
The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) helps keep families safe and healthy through initiatives that assist families with energy costs. We provide federally funded assistance in managing costs associated with home energy bills, energy crises, weatherization and energy-related minor home repairs. LIHEAP can help you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer through programs that reduce the risk of health and safety problems that arise from unsafe heating and cooling practices.
The PACE HEAP program only serves the following Los Angeles County zip codes. If you do not see your zip code listed, please use the State LIHEAP service provider lookup tool by clicking here.

The Weatherization Assistance Program assists income-eligible families and individuals by reducing their heating and cooling costs and addressing health and safety issues in their homes through energy-efficiency measures. Weatherization services reduce the amount of energy required to heat and cool homes and provide hot water, thus reducing energy consumption, while minimizing the impact of higher fuel costs on low-income families. Household energy-use reductions and resultant energy cost savings are significant, with an average annual savings in excess of 20%.
Our Energy Savings Assistance Program can help you conserve energy and save money. For income-qualified customers, we may be able to provide free appliances and installation of energy-efficient refrigerators, air conditioners and more, as well as home efficiency solutions like weatherization that will help you save energy and money every day.
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is a Federally-funded program that provides utility bill payment assistance to qualified households who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. ARPA can provide qualified households up to $3,000 to assist in settling their unpaid electricity or natural gas utility bills. The program provides assistance on a first come, first served basis. Any qualified household who applies cannot be denied assistance.
