Want to Enroll Your Project? Here’s What You’ll Need to Do:

  1. Schedule a preliminary site visit. Call us to schedule a preliminary visit where we will perform a baseline evaluation, review your project plans, estimate possible energy savings and recommend additional energy efficiency upgrades.
  2. Schedule an insulation inspection. If you are installing new insulation, call us and schedule this inspection to take place once the insulation work is complete but before the wallboard has gone up.
  3. Schedule a final inspection. As your project nears completion, call us and set up a final site visit with us so we can finalize all the details on your project.

After the final inspection is processed, you’ll receive an incentive completion notification via email. Within 8-10 weeks of your final inspection, you’ll receive an incentive check in the mail.
