The Truckee Donner Public Utility District (TDPUD) offers rebates on qualified energy and water efficient upgrades for your home. Their goal is to help you minimize your carbon footprint, and save money.

They even provide a rebate to install a home electric vehicle charger!

Residential Energy Surveys

TDPUD can have an energy specialist assess your home through a remote phone call. They will help you identify opportunities to reduce your energy and water bills, while helping you navigate available rebates for upgrades. Call 1-530-587-3896 for more information.,

Energy Star Appliances

Energy Star appliances will save you 10% to 50% in energy use compared to non-Energy Star new appliances. You can save more if you are replacing an old appliance. They can help you upgrade to an Energy Star rated induction cooktop or range. 

Heat Pump Hot Water Heaters

By extracting free heat from the ambient air, Hot Water Heat Pumps have a low cost of operation compared to gas heaters or electric elements. This means a better result for the environment and your pocket!

Envelope Upgrades

Leaky ducts, drafty doors, and aged windows can all waste energy and can prevent your heating system from maintaining comfortable temperatures inside your home. Get rebates on items that would envelope your home, keeping it cool in summer and warm in the winter.

EV Charging at Home

Most home chargers currently use the universal J1772™ connector while Tesla chargers use the upcoming North American Charging Standard (J3400). Whichever charger you choose, it should be tested and certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory to make sure that it’s safe to use in your home and with your EV. Make sure your charger comes with ENERGY STAR certification to ensure your charger uses minimal energy when not charging.

Some “smart” EV chargers are WiFi enabled and can be managed using an app. Users can set a charging schedule, get convenient reminders to charge, and help you track charging costs and miles driven!

Electric Panel Upgrade

If you are making changes from gas appliances to electric, or adding an EV charger, you will need to ensure that your electric panel is adequately sized to handle the new electric loads. Modern service panels are designed to be 'solar ready' and to handle the demands from carbon friendly electric appliances, EV chargers, and renewable generation!

Water Efficient Toilets

Water efficient toilets use 1.28 gallons per flush or less. This is much lower than older toilets which can use 3 gallons of water (or more) with every flush. TDPUD offers rebates to swap your toilets for water efficient ones.
