SAVE MONEY HOME UTILITIES – 30 PERCENT – GAS AND ELECTRIC CARE PROGRAMS
If you are a first time home buyer, retired, work for minimum wage or a student, most likely will qualify for the CARE programs offered by Southern California Gas Company, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), and Southern California Edison.
All three utility companies have CARE programs. The more people in your household the greater chance you will qualify. For example, if you are a couple with one child, and earn up to $47,700, you will save 30%. So, an electric bill for $82.22 could be as little as $57.15.
Below are the requirements to qualify.
Total income for all persons in your household meets the following income guidelines:
|Number of persons in household||Total yearly household income* no more than|
|For each additional person in your household add $8,120. * Includes current household income from all sources before deductions|
You will need to call or go into the offices of the water departments in the city you are buying the home to get your water service transferred. Some cities require a deposit. When you are in escrow I will send the information on where to call depending on which city the home you are buying is in.
DMV Department of Motor Vehicles You will need to contact the DMV to change your address for your car registration and drivers license. This is very important, as if you do not pay your DMV on time the fine is relatively high. You will be able to make DMV changes online or go in the the downtown San Luis Obispo Office 3190 S Higuera St. Below is a link if you need to Renew your Drivers license or register to VOTE in San Luis Obispo County. The DMV does not provide the Required DL 44 from on the DMV web site, so I decided to provide The from on my Web Site.
