California Advanced Homes Program

Revised Effective Date for the 2013 California Building Energy Efficiency Standards

The California Advanced Homes Program (CAHP) has extended the deadline for participation in the 2013 program to June 30, 2014. This move is to align the program with the California Energy Commission (CEC) decision to revise the effective date for the 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards (Title 24) from January 1, 2013 to July 1, 2014. The Building Standards Commission approved the CEC six-month revised implementation date on December 18, 2013.

Building today for tomorrow's environment

We've got the blueprint to build more environmentally friendly communities.

Our 2013 California Advanced Homes Program (CAHP) highlights best practices in energy efficiency, green building and sustainability. The CAHP program offers generous financial incentives and "bonus kickers" to help builders and architects create environmentally friendly, energy-efficient communities for potential new home buyers. This program will be effective through to June 30, 2014.

Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas), San Diego Gas & Electric®, Southern California Edison and Pacific Gas and Electric Company are working together to help the building industry design and develop more environmentally friendly communities.

The California Advanced Homes Program Handbook offers much more on program requirements, incentive information and applications for program participation.

New for 2013

Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) is now offering the California Advanced Homes Program in our shared service territory with Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP).

Please note: For projects where SoCalGas provides the natural gas and the electricity is provided by a municipal utility other than LADWP -- examples include, but are not limited to, Anaheim Public Utilities, Riverside Public Utilities and Imperial Irrigation District -- only natural gas saving incentives will be available from CAHP.

Climate Zone Fact Sheets

It's important to know the climate zone of your building project. For example, in a hot area like Climate Zone 10, improving cooling efficiency will be more important than it is in a coastal area like Climate Zone 7. To participate in the California Advanced Homes Program, builders must complete an application and submit compliance documentation.

Climate Zone information, including a map and list of Climate Zones by city, is available on the California Energy Commission's website.*
