About Energy Services

For over 30 years Fresno EOC Energy Services Program has provided housing improvements that increase a home’s energy efficiency through various state, federal, and private funding opportunities.

Our program works to help our community become energy efficient by educating and providing quality weatherization services and solar, one home at a time.

Weatherization Services

Homeowners and renters in Fresno County who are income-eligible can save money not only on their energy bills but also on repairs. We can help with qualified mobile homes, apartments, houses, and condos!

Weatherization includes the installation of energy conservation measures and provides energy education to help make your home safer and more comfortable. Our goal is to reduce energy costs while improving energy efficiency and ensuring health and safety for low-income families, particularly the elderly, people with disabilities, and families with young children.

Fresno EOC Energy Services may be able to assist eligible households with minor repairs or replacements for qualifying units when certain conditions are met. *

* For specific information on this service, please call our office and ask to speak to one of our Intake Representatives for more information.

Weatherization measures may include:

  • Weather-stripping doors and caulking windows or gaps around home
  • Testing, repairing, or replacement* of refrigerators, water heaters, heating and/or cooling systems, and cooking appliance repairs or replacement
  • Insulating exterior walls, ceilings, and floors
  • Installing low-flow shower heads
  • Upgrading interior and exterior lighting services
  • Duct repair and replacement

These changes help to increase the comfort of your home while saving you money. Without weatherization, homes waste energy, making heating/cooling units work harder to keep your home at a constant temperature, resulting in increased utility costs.

Apply for weatherization services

Our program services and eligibility requirements change from year to year based on funding and community needs. Homeowners, as well as renters living in Fresno County who meet income guidelines, may apply for services.

For more information on current services available, please contact our office at (559) 263-1588 and speak to one of our Intake Representatives.

Yes. Through funding that is provided from federal, state and private grants, we are able to provide these services at no cost to income-eligible households.
I am a renter. Can I still qualify?
Yes, as long as you are income-eligible for the program and we get permission from your landlord to do the work.
My house is falling apart…can you fix my roof? Can you fix my stairs?
No. We are an energy efficiency program and work only on changes that make your home energy efficient. We do not provide construction or home upgrade services.
Can I get a new refrigerator? A Stove? A microwave?
Fresno EOC Energy Services is an energy efficiency program. That being said, when our technicians go into the home to inspect the specific needs of that residence; part of their assessment is to check the efficiency and safety of appliances. Besides staying within budget, certain conditions must be met when determining whether the residence qualifies to have an appliance repaired or replaced. Please understand that our staff is committed to assisting our clients to our fullest potential. When the technician submits recommendations to their supervisor, they are checked against a budget and contractual guidelines before determining what will be done to the home.
My water heater is broken, PG&E told me to call you so you could replace it for free.

If certain conditions are met your home may be eligible for assistance with repair/replacement of water heating appliances, When there is an emergency, please alert the intake representative assisting you so they can make sure your application is processed through the proper channels.
My heater is broken can you fix it now?

When there is an emergency, please alert the intake representative assisting you so they can make sure your application is processed through the proper channels.
PG&E told me I was qualified for weatherization services, why do I have to go through the application process again?
PG&E does a pre-qualification survey prior to sending you to us for services. We need to have a paper trail for our funding sources including PG&E. Plus, the extra effort allows us to see if you qualify for additional energy services under other contracts.
PG&E told me to call you to get my heater/cooler fixed. When can you come fix it?
Fresno EOC is not a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) contractor. Fresno EOC’s State programs may assist low-income residents with facilitating repairs and replacement of heating and air conditioning units by using our authorized contractors. Persons interested in these services must apply and be found eligible for energy services.
I am a homeowner but do not meet your eligibility requirements. Where can I go to receive assistance?

What is Freddie Mac Enhanced Relief Refinance (FMERR)?

HARP program expired on December 31, 2018. To ensure that high LTV borrowers who are eligible for HARP program continue to have a refinance option the Federal Housing Agency (FHFA) launched a new program: Freddie Mac Enhanced Relief Refinance (FMERR)

This program is essentially an extension of HARP but with different names and slightly different requirements. Through the new program, homeowners can get a lower interest rate (which means less out-of-pocket costs each month), get a shorter loan term, or change from an adjustable to a fixed-rate mortgage. There’s no minimum credit score needed, either.
