Utility Program Status Change Definitions and Explanations?

Understanding the different program statuses of utility rebate programs

It’s important to keep track of the program’s status when estimating a rebate or you could be providing an estimate for a rebate that cannot be captured. Below are the definitions of the program status options that can be found in Encentivizer.
