Energy-saving opportunities go beyond just lighting. Your SMUD energy specialist will evaluate HVAC, refrigeration and other systems, providing recommendations that will benefit your bottom line.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

We take the hassle out of the process in 3 stress-free steps. Here’s how:

A SMUD authorized energy professional will perform a NO COST, comprehensive energy assessment of your dealership, looking at your lighting, HVAC, refrigeration, and other systems to identify where you can save the most energy and money.

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!

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.

The benefits keep going

Ugraded lighting and equipment isn’t just good for the environment. It’s great for business. Here are just a few of the benefits that come out of an upgrade:

Product enhancement

There is a difference in how customers see and experience products. The right lighting offers better quality and color rendering, which can lead to improved sales.

More light where it’s needed most

New lighting technology offers increased light levels with minimal glare. This means that your product and lots will be properly illuminated while remaining a good neighbor and abiding by municipal ordinances.

Reduce operating costs

Equipment installed during a retrofit is more energy efficient and lasts longer. This means that you get more for your money because longer gaps between replacement translate to lower labor costs related to maintenance.

Improvements with no interruption

Tackling improvement projects becomes sidelined by the everyday requirements of running your business. That’s where we come in; from assessment to installation, we work to make your business more efficient while you continue to deliver your services.
