Step 3 – Select Your Technology and Contractor
Once we notify you that you’re a good candidate for the program, you can use our Contractor Matching Tool to select the technology you’re interested in and get paired with a qualified contractor. Not all contractors participate in our financing program, so if you’re interested in financing, be sure to select the "interested in on-bill financing" option when selecting the technology you are interested in installing.

Step 4 – Submit Your Participant Agreement
After getting your bid(s) and selecting the contractor you want to move forward with, e-mail us to let us know who you will be working with. Please note: You must let us know who you are working with before starting your project. SCP and our program implementer, Frontier Energy, will help you fill out a Participant Agreement. Click here for a sample agreement. The agreement will outline the anticipated energy savings from the improvements you select, as well as the monthly repayment amount. Once you receive the participation agreement, you have 30 days to sign and return the agreement.

Step 5 – Install Your Technologies and Start Saving
Your next step is to work with your contractor to install the technologies. Once your installation is complete, your contractor will submit the required "Notice of Completion" paperwork to SCP. Upon receiving the confirmation from your contractor, you can expect the repayment line item to appear on your PG&E bill in 1-2 billing cycles.
