Anaheim Public Utilities does not endorse or pre-approve any solar contractors or their qualifications for the solar rebate program; therefore, any such representation by a solar contractor is FALSE. It is important for every customer considering a solar contractor to thoroughly investigate that contractor's credentials. Please let us know if any solar contractor has claimed to be “endorsed” or “pre-approved” in any discussions you may have.
