This Program Had Contractors in Mind
Tiger Adolf, Ed Thomas
Energy efficiency program sponsors struggle to involve contractors and engage homeowners in residential upgrade programs. This session presents a roadmap to help program administrators establish (or enhance) an engaged and qualified contractor network that will help homeowners install energy efficiency improvements consistent with national guidelines. The success and failure of programs led to development of a predictable chronology for engagement with action steps, adjustment opportunities, and tips for maintaining momentum.
