SMUD HPP - May Newsletter

SMUD now Offering 9 Smart Thermostats in HPP
Effective immediately, 7 more smart thermostats have been added to the SMUD approved smart thermostat list in addition to the EcoBee3G and Nest3G.  Here is the new, complete list of 9 SMUD HPP approved thermostats: (more models may be added in the future)
  • Bryant Housewise
  • Carrier Cor
  • EcoBee3
  • EcoBee3G
  • EcoBee3 Lite
  • EcoBee4
  • EcoFactor Simple 100
  • Nest3G
  • Nest T3 Learning Series
These thermostats are listed on the Home Performance with Energy Star website where you can get the Smart Thermostat technical specs and features. 
The following information will be required to be entered into the JRT when a Smart Thermostat is part of the HPP job:
  • Thermostat brand name
  • Thermostat serial number
  • Thermostat model number
  • AC make and model
The rebate is available as a standalone HPP measure with or without HVAC replacement. The rebate amount is $75. Smart Thermostats can be considered for a bonus kicker regardless of the HVAC selection. Keep in mind the 5th HPP upgrade is worth a bonus $300, so your installation of a smart thermostat could get your customer an extra $375 instead of $75.
Note: This measure does NOT qualify for the double electric heat rebate structure.
Need Homeowner Email addresses for SMUD HPP survey   
In an effort to better serve you, your customers and provide the best Home Performance Program we can, we are asking that you get your customer’s email address at the time of your initial paperwork and submit the e-mail address on line 19 of your JRT.  The information will be kept in the strictest of confidence by SMUD.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you! or 510-788-0463.
New Deadline for submitting complete job files:
Effective immediately, you have 30 days from the date of your signed contract to submit a pre-upgrade JRT. This is changed from the previous 2- week deadline. We understand it can get really busy out there and we want to make it easier for you to participate in the program, however, failure to upload the JRT within 30 days will cause the HPP project to be ineligible for the SMUD program.
If you can complete the upgrade within 30 calendar days after contract signing, you can submit both the pre-upgrade walkthrough and post-upgrade test-out information in a one JRT via a single Vision upload.
Keeping up the good work with SMUD Home Performance Program
Thank you all for helping make the SMUD HPP a success. As you have reported to us, the winter was brutal to the progress of HPP jobs and as a result, we are running behind on our 2017 projections. Please consider every job you bid a potential SMUD HPP job. We have the money for the rebates and we want to pay them! Please let us know how we can help. Thank you and have a safe, busy and prosperous summer!
