Utility Allowance

2018 HCV Utility Allowances

Effective January 1, 2018

The Housing Authority reviews Utility Allowances annually. Through collaborative efforts with PG&E, the Housing Authority is able to obtain actual consumption data from dwelling units occupied by active HCV participants. The Housing Authority prepares three levels of Utility Allowances for Multi-Housing developments as per the following:

  • Developments that do not exceed California Title 24 requirements must use the regular Multi-Family Utility Allowances.
  • Developments that exceed California Title 24 requirements by at least 10% may use the “Energy Efficient” allowances.
  • Developments that exceed California Title 24 requirements by 20%, may use the “High Energy Efficient” allowances.

Updated Utility Allowances are submitted to the Board of Commission for approval in the month of December. Updated Allowances are effective for new admissions and transfers effective the day after Board approval in December.
