Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) offers a wide array of incentives for its commercial customers to increase the energy efficiency of their facilities. SMUD offers four different rebate programs to accomplish this goal. Customers who know the energy upgrades they want to install, have a contractor, and are ready to start should consider the Express Energy Solutions. For customers who don't know where to start, the Complete Energy Solutions program may be a good place to begin. Complex, large, and industrial projects are often good candidates for the Custom Incentives Program. For new construction measures, customers should consider the Savings by Design program. More information can be found on the program website.
