How it Works

STEP 1: Reserve Your SV Clean Energy Rebate.

Submit a completed Rebate Reservation form embedded below. After submitting the form, you will receive an email from SVCEprograms@smud.org with an updated approval status and if approved your rebate will be reserved for up to 90 days.

*Please ensure you receive an email confirming your rebate reservation request approval before installing any equipment or you will not be eligible to receive a rebate.

STEP 2: Start & Complete Your Home Upgrade.

  • Equipment: Review the SV Clean Energy Equipment Specifications to learn about the equipment and appliance guidelines and ensure that the products you purchase are eligible for a rebate. Use the Appliances Assistant to shop for efficient electric equipment or visit your own retailer of choice.
  • Contractor: Check out the Find a Contractor resources to connect with local installers who have experience installing all-electric appliances. Or connect with your own retailer or contractor. We recommend you do some research and get a few quotes. You can use any contractor of your choice and do not have to use a contractor from our resources in order to qualify for the SV Clean Energy rebate.*
  • Permitting: Make sure to apply for the right building permits with your city or county. Your contractor can help with the permitting process too.

*If you are interested in additional BayREN rebates, please reach out to a BayREN contractor or visit the BayREN website prior to beginning your project. Your BayREN contractor will also help you apply for BayREN rebates.

STEP 3: Request Your SV Clean Energy Rebate.

After completing your appliance upgrade and it was inspected by your City or County, submit a Rebate Claim form below. You will be asked to provide photos of your newly installed equipment and proof of project costs.

STEP 4: Receive Your SV Clean Energy Rebate.

After submitting the rebate claim form, you will receive an email notifying you that we have reviewed your claim. We will then issue the rebate and mail it to you or to your contractor, whichever is your preference.

Why Heat Pump Water Heaters & Space Heating?

Typical water heaters and HVAC equipment burn fossil fuels – but that is old news. Heat pump water heaters and heat pump HVAC systems move heat from one place to another to warm water and the air. Why is that so cool (pun intended)? By moving existing heat, heat pump appliances are highly efficient and run on clean electricity – a big improvement over polluting gas appliances.

Your new heat pump appliances will provide hot water to your sinks, showers and washing machines, as well as hot and cold air to the rooms in your home using carbon-free electricity. Overall, this technology saves energy, improves safety and adds comfort at home!
