Community Energy Challenge - Contractors

CEC logoEnergy efficiency is creating and sustaining jobs in an industry that has been hit hard by the recession.
This program is one of many across the country putting people back to work and helping transition into a greener economy.

Tom explain

In order to receive incentives for completing energy efficiency upgrades with the Community Energy Challenge residential* program, participants must have the work completed through the CEC and by a local contractor that has been vetted by the CEC. This is to ensure that the recommended measures are completed by a professional who has specific training in the weatherization and building performance fields.

*Due to the large variety in participating business types, there is no similar restriction for CEC businesses.

Benefits to Contractors

The Community Energy Challenge supports the growing workforce of energy efficiency contractors by providing educational resources and training opportunities through the Building Performance Center. Please check here for information on upcoming trainings.

The program also eliminates the resources contractors spend on finding customers by coordinating projects and providing direct leads after a home energy assessment has been completed. (All projects receiving CEC incentives must begin with a CEC home energy assessment.)
