SoCalGas Announces New $75 Residential Rebate for Smart Thermostats  
New web-based application makes applying for energy efficiency rebates easier and faster

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) announced the company is now offering $75 rebates for residential customers who purchase eligible ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostats that help residents manage their heating and cooling costs and conserve energy. The rebates, which have increased from $50, cover models from Nest, ecobee and Honeywell, and others, and are available through Dec. 15, 2018. To help customers take advantage of the opportunity, the utility also launched a new web-based application form, available at, that streamlines the application process, allowing customers to receive the rebate more quickly. In addition to SoCalGas’ rebate, utility customers can apply for a smart thermostat rebate through their electric provider for a combined savings of up to $150.

Who We Are 

After three and one-half decades, the Congress of California Seniors (CCS) is one of the most widely recognized non-profit organizations in California. We are consistently asked to speak out on issues and usually take a position on ballot initiatives and landmark legislation. Our reputation speaks well of the senior leaders who have worked hard on behalf of CCS since its founding in 1977.

What We Do 

CCS sponsors local workshops, regular regional meetings, and statewide conferences which bring together diverse voices from California’s senior community. We have taken a progressive stance on most issues and worked with other advocacy groups representing the interests of patients, consumers, the disabled, workers and others. CCS also issues an annual report that analyzes and rates all state legislators on their voting record related to key senior issues; it receives wide media coverage.
