Hiring A Contractor - Business

contractor 2Hiring the right contractor can make a big difference in the scope, timeframe and cost of your project. Working with vendors who've been trained by our staff and who have participated in Tacoma Power rebate programs in the past means your rebate and incentive process will go more smoothly. 


Here are a few recommendations to help you find a qualified contractor:

  • Get a minimum of three contractor bids for any project.
  • Ask potential contractors what size and type of work they do to find contractors who fit your project's size and scope.
  • Ask for recent references. Call those references and ask about their experience.
  • Verify the contractor is licensed, bonded and insured.
  • Confirm the new proposed system or product(s) meets your facility's needs. 
  • Confirm the written warranty on the installation (for materials and labor) with the contractor.
  • Ask for the manufacturer's documents (specification sheets) and confirm quality and life expectancy of proposed equipment.
  • Always have a signed, written proposal with your contractor before work begins. The proposal should specify all costs (including our incentives), equipment model numbers, job schedule and warranty (material and labor) information. Never begin a project without one. Please note, some of our rebates and programs also require signed contracts with us before work begins.
  • Discuss material disposal with your contractor. It should be included in the proposal if special disposal is required. For example, fluorescent lamps and ballasts are considered hazardous waste.
