Sample project – HVAC and required safety test

This sample HVAC system replacement project requires a safety test. Because the property is serviced by both Southern California Edison and Southern California Gas Company, a utility bill from each company is required.

Sample project – HVAC plus nonenergy efficiency measures

This sample project is an installation of a HVAC system with a nonenergy efficiency measure. One spouse (Ellen Ramirez) is the utility customer, and the other spouse (Pat Ramirez) is the borrower. Below is a list of documents needed to submit to a lender for this project.
