In order to register as a HVAC contractor or plumbing and heating contractor, you must enter

Agreement Clause:
TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Equipment eligibility
To qualify for rebates, all central air conditioning equipment must be certified by the Air
Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (www.aridirectory.org), and all heating equipment must be
certified by the Consumers Directory of Certified Efficiency Ratings for Heating and Water
Heating. Applications with non-certified equipment will be returned to the customer without a
rebate. It is the contractor’s responsibility to resolve equipment eligibility issues with the
customer. It is the sole responsibility of the participating contractor to ensure that equipment sold
meets certification and to secure the appropriate information upon Xcel Energy’s request.

Promotion of Xcel Energy’s residential rebate programs
Xcel Energy will provide participating contractors with rebate forms and promotional materials, if
available, to assist contractors in promoting energy-efficient air conditioners to their customers.
Program updates will be available at xcelenergy.com/homerebates. Participating contractors
are required to provide their customers with accurate and updated information about qualifying
equipment and associated rebate amounts.

Contractors shall not use Xcel Energy’s corporate name, trademark, trade name, logo, identity or
any affiliation for any reason—including soliciting customers—without Xcel Energy’s prior written
consent. This shall apply to, but not be limited to: seller proposal forms, envelopes, business
cards, vehicle panels, telephone directory listings, trade publications, advertising, door-to-door
flyers, clothing, briefcases, clipboards, billboards, and mailings.

Removal from program participation
Xcel Energy reserves the right to end contractor participation in this program at any time for any
of the following reasons: 1) failure to comply with agreement terms and conditions; 2)
misrepresentation of program to Xcel Energy customers and/or other contractors; 3) knowingly
submitting false or incorrect information regarding a rebate; 4) termination of Xcel Energy’s
residential rebate programs; or 5) utility regulatory requirements. Egregious violations may be
subject to legal prosecution.

If contractor participation is discontinued for any reason, Xcel Energy is not liable for rebates
submitted by contractors after discontinuing participation. Xcel Energy will honor rebates for
qualifying equipment sold by that contractor up to the termination date under program practices in
place at the time. Xcel Energy is not liable for rebates in which participating contractors provided
customers with incorrect information about the amount and/or condition of the actual rebate.

AGREEMENT
I have read and agree to comply with the Terms and Conditions of this agreement. I further agree
to adhere to the terms and conditions of the rebate program, as stated on the current rebate
application.
I agree to notify Xcel Energy if my address and/or other contact information changes so that I can
continue to receive program updates in a timely manner.

                                     I Agree      I Disagree

                      Quality Installation Assessment Required

In order to participate in the 2007 Central AC and/or Air Source Heat Pump Rebate programs, a
technician from your company must pass an assessment demonstrating their understanding of
proper sizing, airflow, refrigerant charge and duct sealing. The assessment consists of 50
multiple-choice questions and takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes to complete. At least 75% of
the questions must be answered correctly to receive a passing score.

Xcel Energy will cover the cost for one assessment per company. Please enter the name and
email address of the technician from your company who will take the assessment:

Business Name:

Technician name:

Technician email address:

Re-type technician email address:


                                               SAVE

A user name and password will be sent to the email address you entered above within 24 hours.
It will contain a link directly to the assessment. Your designated technician may log in at any time
to take the assessment once - free of charge. You WILL NOT be a registered Central AC/Air
Source Heat Pump contractor until your company’s representative has passed the assessment.

If the technician does not answer at least 75% of the questions correctly the first time, your
company will need to pay $34 to re-take the assessment each time until a passing score is
received. We will send instructions on how to purchase additional assessments as necessary.

Want to prepare before taking the assessment?
If you’d like to refresh your knowledge of proper installation practices before taking the
assessment, our partner, HVACReducation, offers a $95 Quality Installation Review. Review
participants have access to the content for 30 days and are able to take practice tests to discover
what their weak areas might be. The review is optional and separate from the Quality Installation
Assessment. Buy the Quality Installation Review.
