Building owners must contact GWP (818) 548-3300 to schedule a pre-retrofit inspection. GWP conducts the inspection, documents the existing SEER/EER levels, and ensures AC is operational. Building owner completes work and notifies GWP to schedule a post-retrofit inspection. GWP conducts post-retrofit inspection, verifies ENERGY STAR qualifications of new units, records SEER/EER levels of new units and calculates final rebate amount. Building owner signs completed rebate application and W9 form.
The Peak Hog Small Business Program is similar to the multifamily residential program, but some separate conditions apply.
