Contractor Newsletter: March 2019

GNE waitlist update

The GNE waitlist is still in effect, but additional funding is available, and we’ve started processing projects in the order in which they were received. Please be on the lookout for emails from our account managers requesting information or documentation, and submit them to keep your projects in good order.

Business Energy Efficiency Program

New bronze, silver and gold badges are being sent to customers who’ve participated in the Excellence in Energy Efficiency Program. To provide customers with more opportunities to show off their badges, we are sending both electronic and physical badges.

Electronic badges will be sent the week of March 18 and physical badges (window clings) will be mailed at the beginning of April.

Please encourage your customers to show off their badge and to go for gold by doing more energy efficiency projects!

Direct Discount Program

  • Pre-install and post-install photos are required for every project even if a verification has been completed. Photos should include: a) Front of business where measures are being installed; b) Photos of the fixture types being replaced; and c) A few wide shots of the areas being retrofit.
