After a three-year hiatus due to the COVID 19 pandemic, Efficiency Maine hosted more than 200 electricians, plumbers, heating installers, insulation technicians, distributors, fabricators, business owners and other stakeholders, who gathered for awards and attended workshops on Maine Efficiency Initiatives and trends in energy efficiency. Workshop sessions focused on residential initiatives, including low- and moderate-income weatherization, and commercial and industrial initiatives that will invest in federal Maine Jobs and Recovery Plan funding. Sessions also covered Efficiency Maine’s demand management and electric vehicle initiatives.

“It’s important to celebrate the hard work of so many dedicated entrepreneurs working in Maine’s energy sector,” said Michael Stoddard, executive director of Efficiency Maine. “These mostly small and locally owned businesses provide equipment and services that enable Maine energy consumers to manage their costs by improving efficiency and switching to cleaner energy.”

In Maine Efficiency programs, home energy upgrades are done by Residential Registered Sellers while energy improvements in commercial and industrial facilities are provided by Qualified partners. Efficiency Maine presented 29 of these awards to contractors and suppliers for outstanding performance in selling and servicing energy upgrades using financial incentives from statewide efficiency programs. These companies, among the more than 1,000 business allies listed on the organization’s website, are experienced salespeople, contractors, suppliers and other professionals who supply or install energy-efficient equipment, receive training from Efficiency Maine and are familiar with Efficiency Maine’s incentive programs. .

Efficiency Maine Trust is the independent administrator of programs to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gases in Maine. The Trust achieves this primarily by providing financial incentives for the purchase of high-efficiency equipment or changes to operations that help customers save electricity, natural gas and other fuels across Maine’s economy. The Trust is a quasi-state agency governed by a board of directors under the supervision of the Maine Public Utilities Commission. Visit www.efficiencymaine.com for more information.
