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.
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.
Let's Make a Difference Together Saving Energy
California has long been a leader in environmental protection and preservation, and we continue to be an example for the rest of the nation by setting our sights high. But what can we do to protect our state? We need to understand that when we use electricity matters – not just how much electricity we use. By moving some of our energy use to certain times of day, we can better align our usage to when cleaner energy is more abundant and help protect our state. Power down from 4pm to 9pm and help do your part. To learn more about Time of Use, visit https://www.energyupgradeca.org/time-of-use/.

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.
I need additional energy assistance, is there any other help I can access?
