If the customer is within the service area, you will receive a confirmation code. Copy that code for your records as well as STEP 2
Step 1 Tutorial
Step 2: Submitting the Incentive Information to CEMA
Note: If your system and your furnace both qualify for a rebate, please submit 2 separate claims; one for the system rebate and one for furnace rebate. You can use the same confirmation code for the homeowner address but you must include the AHRI # specific to the product you are claiming.
Once you complete step 1 & 2, CEMA will review the information submitted and confirm the claim is correct
CEMA will submit confirmed claims to CleaResult the first of every month for CleaResult to approve. If you do not submit your claim before the first, it will be submitted with the following months claims.
CEMA will receive payment on the approved submitted claims from CleaResult two weeks from submission.
CEMA will pay out only approved claims that are paid by the utility company. If the utility company doesn’t pay CEMA for your claim, CEMA will not pay you. Dealers will be notified via email if claims were not paid
CEMA will pay out claim in the form of a credit to the dealers account by the 30th of the month following the submission
If you submit a claim on Oct 21, your claim will be submitted to CleaResult on Nov 1, and if approved by CleaResult, you will receive a credit no later than Nov 30th.
