Natural Gas Appliance Rebate Program

The County of Marin, through the Electrify Marin Program, is offering rebates to single family property owners for the replacement of natural gas appliances with efficient all-electric units, including water heaters, furnaces, ranges and cooktops.  The goal of the program is to help you reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve indoor air quality and make your home a safer environment.

Rebates range from $250 to $1,000 per appliance (and more for income-qualified households) and in cases where an upgrade is needed to an existing electric service panel, further rebates are offered. Visit the website for a listing of appliance types/rebates, rebate requirements and how to apply, application and financial forms, resources and FAQ.

With increased availability of renewable electricity in Marin County, natural gas consumption represents a growing proportion of our greenhouse gas emissions. The County’s Climate Action Plan aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to 30% below 1990 levels by 2020. As of 2016, the County has reduced emissions to 21% below 1990 levels. To move further toward the 2020 goal, we must address emissions from natural gas.
