Program Administrator for SMUD

EFCA leads the way in rebate program management

Rebates are a crucial part of building a cleaner world for all of us. Implementing them properly is a huge responsibility and fulfilling their promise is a monumental ongoing task. 

We carefully assembled a brilliant team to create sophisticated systems and workflows that work easily and efficiently for everyone involved. We pioneered innovative solutions to shaping statewide rebates programs not only for SMUD, but TECH, SGIP, PG&E and more. We also openly share our processes so others do not have to re-invent the wheel.
