Next steps

Once you receive written approval from SMUD and construction has begun:

  1. Ensure all applicable CF-2R forms are uploaded to the chosen HERS Registry for each home
  2. If applicable, obtain the appropriate CF-3R HERS rating certificates for each home
  3. Keep TRC informed of any changes in equipment or building envelope that would impact energy performance; changes made without notification may forfeit incentive payment
