Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) offers a grant to help its residential customers who have electric heat weatherize homes to increase efficiency. To participate, customers must complete and send in a Weatherization Cash Grant Application Form with landlord signature if applicant is a tenant. A pre-installation audit is required. Customers may call any contractor with a City of Alameda Business License to get an itemized bid. The completed project must be inspected by AMP and a copy of the paid invoice provided to AMP. AMP will then pay the contractor 80% of the cost up to $960 per single family unit or $480 per multifamily unit. The contractor will bill the customer or the landlord for the remaining 20%. All insulation and equipment requirements must be met in order to be eligible. AMP will also cover up to 70% of the project cost for customers who personally weatherize homes. Information for the Do-It-Yourself Weatherization Program is on the program web site listed above. Contact AMP regarding equipment and insulation requirements.
