    Any vendor participating in a PWP rebate program must have the appropriate local and state licensing. PWP may disqualify a vendor from participating in a program if the vendor misrepresents their services to a customer, i.e. falsely stating they are affiliated with the City or any of its entities, or citing a City employee as a reference. The City of Pasadena does not endorse vendors or contractors. Customers are encouraged to obtain three bids from qualified, licensed vendors. The final selection of a project vendor is at the customer’s discretion. All projects submitted to a PWP incentive program are subject to department or city-contracted, third-party verification, which may include equipment data logging to determine equipment usage or run hours. All programs and funding are subject to change at any time.
