The Mobilehome Park (MHP) Utility Upgrade Program, administered by the California Investor Owned Utilities (IOUs) and approved by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) on March 13, 2014 (Decision 14-03-021), is available to MHP owners and manufactured housing communities with a utility owned master-meter and privately owned sub-metered energy distribution systems.

This voluntary pilot program offers MHP owners the opportunity to have their utility company deliver natural gas and/or electric services directly to their MHP residents.

The program aims to enhance public safety and service reliability by replacing aging MHP owned energy distribution systems within the utility’s service area. Program funds are available to convert 10% of the eligible spaces to direct utility service.
