Fehl Construction, specializing in green building, now a participant in PG&E’s rebate program.

Homeowners who have heard about the building green movement spreading across the country can now join the effort and save money as well. Going green has never been easier with the help of Fehl Construction and PG&E’s rebate program.

Why go green? In addition to saving money and resources, occupants of green homes enjoy healthier and more comfortable indoor environments, higher productivity levels, and an improved quality of life. According to the U.S. Green Building Council, buildings account for 36% of total energy use and 65% of electricity consumption. One of the greatest benefits of green buildings is decreased electricity and energy usage, which helps reduce the country’s dependence on fossil fuels and minimizes the strain on local utility infrastructure.

Fehl Construction has provided residents with environmentally-friendly and budget-friendly newly constructed and remodeled homes for the past 30 years. In addition to a general contractor’s license and C10 electrical license, Fehl Construction has a Green Building Certification as part of their commitment to the environment. The certification allows the company to offer a complete building package while promoting energy conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy. As a participant of PG&E’s rebate program, they can help their customers make conservation-conscious decisions while saving money.

“We promote energy conservation, efficiency, and renewable energy as it applies to framing, insulation, windows, water heating, appliances, heating and cooling, lighting and resource conservation,“ says owner of Fehl Construction, Jim Fehl. “On the job site we reduce material waste through recycling, reuse, landscaping, water conservation, efficient framing, durability, and material choices. By participating in PG&E’s rebate program, we look forward to continuing to work with families to improve energy efficiency in their homes and helping them save even more money.”

PG&E Whole House Rebate Program offers both basic and advanced packages. The program encourages residents to take a “whole house” approach by combining several related improvements at once to increase a home’s overall energy efficiency and achieve greater savings. A basic upgrade package can reduce energy consumption by an average of 10% and offers up to $1000 in rebates. An advanced package includes an energy audit and can provide 15% to 40% of energy savings with incentives ranging from $1250 to $4000 depending on efficiency improvements.
