  • Inform the contractor you are interested in participating in SMUD's rebate program   
  • Verify the contractor is informed about SMUD's rebate requirements (install eligible measures, pull permit, provide supporting documentation for rebate application)

  • Get all project expectations in writing
  • Sign a contract only if you completely understand the terms
  • Never make a down payment of more than 10%
  • Never pay in cash
