Silicon Valley Clean Energy customers can receive rebates to remove polluting methane gas out of their homes and make the switch to clean, electric appliances. Gas water heaters and space heating systems are typically a home’s biggest source of emissions, and they contribute to poor air quality in your home and community. The FutureFit Homes Program was created to help SVCE customers take steps towards home electrification.

What rebates are available?
SVCE rebates are available for single-family homes, accessory dwelling units (ADUs), and multi-family homes (4 dwelling units or fewer) swapping out existing equipment, not for completely new building construction. Each dwelling unit is eligible for one rebate per appliance type. See the participant agreement to confirm your project is eligible.
SVCE will award rebates up to the dollar amounts described below. Rebates are not to exceed project costs.
|Heat Pump Water Heaters (gas replacement)||$2,000|
|Heat Pump Water Heaters (electric resistance replacement)||$1,000|
|Heat Pump HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) (gas furnace replacement)||$2,500|
Additional rebate add-ons
These are optional but must be paired with a heat pump water heater or heat pump HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) rebate. Water heater pre-wiring cannot be combined with a heat pump water heater rebate.
|Pre-wiring for future electric appliances||$500 per circuit, up to $2,000 for 4 circuits|
|Main panel upgrade||$1,000|
|All-Electric bonus for removal of the gas meter||$500|
CARE/FERA customers can receive an additional $1,000 per rebate, including all rebate add-ons.
Receiving rebates from other programs, such as the BayREN Home Rebates Program, will not impact your rebate eligibility from SVCE. We encourage you to check out their resources.
Please note that other rebate programs may have different rules, including equipment eligibility, contractor requirements, and rebate applications, so be sure to read the fine print before starting your project.
BayREN has rebates available for all-electric technologies such as:
- Heat pump water heater
- Heat pump HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning)
- Induction stovetop
- Heat pump dryer
- Efficiency measures, including air sealing and insulation

Enhanced tax credits provided by the federal Inflation Reduction Act are now available. Households can claim a tax credit for 30% of eligible home energy upgrade costs, up to $3,200 annually, depending on the project.
In addition, for those who are income-qualified, federal rebates will be available in late 2023 or early 2024 after guidelines are developed.
How it Works
STEP 1: Reserve Your SVCE Rebate.
Submit a completed “Rebate Reservation Request” below. After submitting the “Rebate Reservation Request”, you will receive an email from SVCEprograms@smud.org with an approval status and if approved, your rebate will be reserved for up to 120 days.
The “Rebate Reservation Request” must be approved before the appliance is installed. You will not be eligible to receive the rebate until your application has been approved.
STEP 2: Start & Complete Your Home Upgrade.
- Equipment: Review the SVCE Appliance Specifications to learn about the program guidelines and ensure you are eligible for a rebate. Use the Appliances Assistant to shop for efficient electric equipment or visit your own retailer of choice.
- Contractor: Check out our Find a Contractor web page to connect with local installers who have experience installing all-electric appliances. We recommend you do some research and get a few quotes. You can use any contractor of your choice and do not have to use a contractor from our list of resources in order to qualify for the SVCE rebate.
- Permitting: Make sure to apply for the right building permits with your city or county. Your contractor can help with the permitting process too.
If you are interested in additional BayREN rebates, please reach out to a BayREN contractor or visit the BayREN website prior to beginning your project. Your BayREN contractor will help you apply for BayREN rebates.
STEP 3: Request Your SVCE Rebate.
After completing your appliance upgrade and receiving your permit approval, submit a “Payment Request” form below.
You will be asked to provide photos of your newly installed equipment, proof of project costs, and the permit document(s) signed and dated by your City or County inspector to claim your rebate.
STEP 4: Receive Your SVCE Rebate.
After submitting the “Payment Request” form, you will receive an email notification that we have received it. We will then issue the rebate and mail it to you or to your contractor, whichever is your preference. Please note that it takes approximately four weeks for rebate checks to arrive in the mail.
