SMUD's Complete Energy Solutions for small to mid-sized businesses

Energy efficiency is one of the most cost-effective investments you can make in your business, but the process can be costly, time-consuming and daunting. SMUD is making it easy for local businesses to upgrade their lighting, refrigeration, and HVAC with new energy efficient equipment. Complete Energy Solutions will identify the best energy-saving measures for your business, oversee your project to ensure quality installation, and provide rebates that cover an average of 73% of project costs. You could reduce your energy bill by as much as 20%.

Who is eligible?

Small to mid-sized businesses on the SMUD GSN or GSS rate schedules are eligible to participate in this new program. Call 1-855-822-2936 to see if your business is eligible.

Three easy steps:

  1. A SMUD authorized energy professional will perform a NO COST, comprehensive energy assessment of your business, looking 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! (see sample report).
  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.

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.

Financing may also be available. Call 1-855-822-2936 to schedule your NO COST energy assessment.
