Complete Energy Solutions

This program offers customized efficiency upgrades for small and mid-sized businesses on the SMUD GSN or GSS rate schedules.

One of the most cost-effective investments you can make in your business is to become more energy efficient. Our Complete Energy Solutions program makes it easy for local businesses to upgrade their lighting, refrigeration and HVAC equipment.

Could your business benefit from saving up to 20% on your energy bill?

With Complete Energy Solutions, a SMUD authorized contractor will:

  1. identify the best energy-saving measures that could reduce your energy bill up to 20%
  2. oversee your project to ensure quality installation
  3. provide SMUD rebates, which are about 60% of the cost on average and are determined based on your project needs

Some qualifying rebate measures include:

  • Anti-sweat heater controls
  • High efficiency fan motors
  • Auto door closers
  • Strip Curtains
  • Commercial refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Ice-Makers
  • Ovens
  • TLED
  • Hi Bay
  • Exits Signs
  • Exterior Lighting
  • Lighting Controls
  • Refrigeration Case Lighting
  • Package unit and split system replacements

Follow these three easy steps to get started:

  1. A SMUD authorized energy professional will perform a NO COST, comprehensive energy assessment of your business.  They will look at your lighting, HVAC, refrigeration and other systems to identify where you can save the most energy and money.
  2. You will receive a customized report with your recommended efficiency improvements and the estimated energy savings. This report will also show you the estimated project cost, the amount that will be covered by the rebate and how quickly your investment will pay for itself. Financing may also be available.
  3. When you are ready to move forward, the energy professional can help you find a SMUD Complete Energy Solutions Certified Trade Contractor to install the energy-saving upgrades. With rebates that cover up to 80% of the project costs for small businesses and 60% for mid-size businesses, most projects pay for themselves in one to two years.

Call 1-855-822-2936 to schedule your NO COST energy assessment.

You can choose to pay the trade contractor the entire amount at the time of service and have the rebate sent directly to you OR you can elect to have the rebate sent directly to the contractor so you only pay the co-pay balance. Once the upgrades have been installed, you're done! You can go about your business while saving energy and money.
