The Low-Income Weatherization Program's Farmworker Housing Component provides no-cost rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and energy efficiency upgrades to low-income farmworker households to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lower energy costs for participants. The Farmworker Housing Component is part of CSD's Low-Income Weatherization Program (LIWP) and is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by saving energy and generating clean renewable energy.
The LIWP Farmworker Housing Component currently provides services in two regions that include 18 counties in California that have the highest farmworker populations.
REGION 1: FRESNO - KINGS - MADERA - MERCED - NAPA - SAN JOAQUIN - SONOMA - STANISLAUS - TULARE
REGION 2: IMPERIAL - KERN - MONTEREY - RIVERSIDE - SAN LUIS OBISPO - SANTA BARBARA - SANTA CRUZ -
SAN DIEGO - VENTURA
To be eligible, at least one household member must be an agricultural employee and the household must meet the program’s income guidelines. After qualification, your home will be evaluated to determine what energy efficiency services are right for your household.
A LIWP approved contractor will deliver and install new energy efficient appliances, such as a new air conditioner, furnace, ceiling fans, refrigerator and other services, such as weatherization, to make your home more energy efficient.
An inspector will visit your home to ensure the work performed by the contractor meets all quality standards and all new appliances are working properly.
