Ask your contractor about incentives

Following are some considerations when using a contractor:

  • Discounting your incentive amount from your up-front costs provides immediate savings.
  • Filling out the incentive program applications is usually handled by the contractor.
  • Installing your own system means that you must submit and monitor your own application.
