​Custom Incentives Program

We know our business customers are looking for ways to save money on their energy bills. Our Custom Incentives program designed for complex, large or industrial projects may just be the answer.

Your SMUD Strategic Account Advisor can help tailor an energy upgrade and incentive package for your specific business needs. Incentives are paid based on the amount of energy you save, and they can involve a wide variety of equipment and process improvements.

How it works

  • Heating and Cooling Systems
