Dear Participating Contractors,
To ensure your customers’ project incentives are approved and paid before the program closes, please be sure everyone on your team is aware of the upcoming deadlines to reserve and close out projects, as no exceptions can be made. For any projects that cannot meet these deadlines, consider Advanced Home Upgrade or standalone rebate options for your customers.
Important Dates for the SoCalREN Home Upgrade Program
- July 27, 2018 (Friday) is the last day to create projects in the Contractor Portal. To avoid any delays in the reservation approval process, please be sure to upload a recent copy of the Southern California Edison (SCE) and SoCalGas® utility bills (making sure the service account number, service account name, and service account address are visible) along with the completed and signed Homeowner Terms and Conditions document. Remember: the SCE Service Account Number is a 10-digit number that begins with a 3.
- August 30, 2018 (Thursday) is the last day to submit the Project Completion Form and ALL required close-out documentation to the Contractor Portal. This includes the test-out documentation and proof of closed HVAC permits (if air conditioner and/or furnace measures are claimed). The Project Completion Form Checklist is a handy document that can help make sure you have all the information and documentation you’ll need to submit the Project Completion Form.
- Any issues found during inspection or review must be corrected and submitted by September 10, 2018. No exceptions can be granted.
Reminder: Standalone Rebates and Advanced Home Upgrade Still Available
SCE and SoCalGas, as well as local municipal utilities, offer standalone rebates for various measures. In addition, the Advanced Home Upgrade Program is available to customers served by SCE and SoCalGas or SoCalGas and a municipal electric utility. Please consider submitting applicable measures through a utility program if you would like to offer your new customers rebates and incentives.
