All eligible equipment will be stored on the qualified products list (QPL) within the incentive processing software system (Iris), which will appear to contractors as a series of drop-down menus that limit selections by equipment type, make, model and water heater tank size.

Used equipment is not eligible for incentives.

Any units listed on QPLs at that website are eligible for TECH incentives and will be included on the aforementioned drop-down menus. Contractors should reach out to if there is a unit on the website QPL that is not included in Iris.

The following equipment types are eligible to receive HPWH incentives through the single-family pathway:

  • 240v HPWHs: All units identified as NEEA Tier 3 or JA13 compliant
  • 120v “Plug-In” HPWHs: All units, regardless of compliance with NEEA tier or JA13

To qualify as a JA13-compliant unit, the HPWH model must either be listed on the California Energy Commissions (CEC) JA13 website, or the manufacturer must provide their certificate of self-certification if the unit has not been officially listed on the CEC’s website yet.
