We work closely with Efficiency Maine and other organizations offering rebates and incentives for the successful implementation of qualifying energy improvements. With Efficiency Maine, we hold designations including Qualified Partner, Registered Vendor, and Multifamily Program Partner. We regularly review program guidelines and opportunities and stay in contact with program administrators. This allows our clients' projects to complete smoothly and for our clients to receive all incentive funding for which they are eligible.
Some of the Programs with Which We're Currently Active:
Grants to Green Maine. This program aids nonprofits and covers up to one half of energy retrofit costs. Program website: http://www.mdf.org/g2gmaine_overview.php
