Energy Saver Bundle benefits
SMUD has a bold new Clean Energy Vision to eliminate carbon emissions from our power supply by 2030. To support the plan, we offer Energy Saver Bundle assessments and electrical vehicle chargers to our income eligible customers. Then we can all benefit from improved air quality and cleaner, safer and healthier homes.
Assessments provide many benefits:
- Find ways to reduce your energy use.
- Help lower your utility bills.
- Improve indoor air quality and overall health.
Your dedicated Energy Specialist will conduct a virtual phone, video or in home energy assessment. They'll provide personalized tips to help you be more comfortable in your home. And, you'll save energy and money.
Do I qualify?
If you're enrolled in or qualify for SMUD’s Energy Assistance Program Rate (EAPR), you already qualify.
If you're not enrolled but want to find out if you qualify, check your eligibility with our qualification tool.
If you're unsure if you're already enrolled in EAPR, you can find out by looking at your bill. If your rate category includes the phrase “w/EAPR” then you're enrolled.
