As a result of this training, attendees will learn about how easy the incentive process can be, how advance planning can save you money, why larger tanks may be necessary and what that means for water heater location, power requirements, what to expect from permitting and how it changes the space conditions in the space it's installed in.

Attendees will learn from SMUD and SPAN.io about several, cost-effective solutions to add electrical load, such as EV chargers or heat pump water heaters, that won't require expensive upgrades to their electrical service or upsizing their panel.
