Nonprofit discount

We offer an Energy Assistance Program Rate (EAPR) discount for nonprofit agencies.

Nonprofits that provide housing or temporary shelter for low-income residents may be eligible for our EAPR discount for nonprofit agencies.

You may qualify for one of three programs if the residents you serve would otherwise be eligible for our residential EAPR:

  • Residential EAPR

  • Eligible Commercial and Industrial Rate (CITS-EAPR)

Is my nonprofit eligible?

Qualified accounts must meet the following requirements:

  • The customer named on the SMUD account must be a nonprofit, IRC 501 (c) (3) organization.

  • The account must be a nonprofit public (state, county, city, etc.) or private organization or have an Executed Regulatory Agreement that designates the property as affordable housing.

  • The facility houses people who would otherwise qualify for our normal EAPR program (low-income households).

You will be required to show documents to verify the items above.
