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.
The Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) can offer income-eligible residents of Los Angeles County a credit to their utility bill. HEAP is available for people who purchase energy from the LA Department of Water & Power (LADWP), Southern California Edison (SCE), or the Southern California Gas Company as well as those who heat their home using wood, propane, or oil purchased from a vendor. Along with the utility credit, clients will also receive valuable information about energy conservation and practical tips on how to save energy and keep your utility bill at a manageable level.
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.
