In order to obtain the higher incentives allowed for measures installed in "hard-to-reach" customer homes and multi family dwellings, Project Sponsors must complete the appropriate Commission-approved form.
This statement is made to verify an individual customer's household income. It is to be used to certify "hard-to-reach" status for an individual dwelling or an individual multi family unit when an entire complex cannot be certified using the Category 1 or Category 2 method described below.
Project Sponsors may use this form to verify that at least 75 percent of the units: (1) are rented by income eligible customers, and (2) have a separate electric meter. Contractors participating in the programs receive higher incentive payments when at least 75 percent of the tenants in an individual complex qualify as income eligible. One form must be filled out for each qualifying multi-family apartment complex.
Page 2 of the tenant certification form is to be used if the tenant rental applications for multifamily dwelling occupants meet the following criteria:
Otherwise, the household income for at least 75% of the occupants must be verified using the Household Income Self Certification form (above).
