Advanced Homes is a free sustainable home upgrade program focused exclusively on our community of Bassett and Avocado Heights. Using grant money from the California Energy Commission, we’re partnering with fifty lucky homeowners to create a network of Advanced Homes, decked out with the newest clean energy technologies like solar panels, battery storage, and heat pumps.
We’re striving to make Advanced Homes as accessible as possible. To be eligible for free Advanced Homes upgrades, you must be a homeowner in the Bassett or Avocado Heights neighborhoods. If you’re not sure if your address falls in one of these neighborhoods, we can help you confirm if your location qualifies.
To make sure clean energy is accessible to everyone, we also have an income qualification. If you participate in the California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) program or the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) program, you’ll likely meet our requirements too.
Even if you’re not sure if this sounds like you, join the waitlist and we will talk you through all the ins and outs of program participation!
Advanced Homes is excited to be launching soon! We’re building our waitlist and will begin contacting potential program participants in Summer 2021. All you need to do now is fill out our form to join the waitlist.
Community Solar is a new way to save money on your electricity bill. We’re installing 1.2 megawatts (enough to power over 600 homes!) of solar panels at Evergreen Baptist Church. These solar panels will generate local renewable electricity that can be shared by community subscribers (that’s you!). When you join, you receive a credit on your electricity bills for your share of the power generated.
With Community Solar, anyone who lives in Basset and Avocado Heights can get their electricity from a local renewable source. We especially encourage anyone participating in utility bill assistance programs, such as California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) program or the Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA) program, to sign up for even more electricity bill savings.
This year, we’re building our waitlist and building our local solar installation. We will begin contacting potential participants in early 2022. All you need to do now is fill out our form to join the waitlist!
