More options for contractors 
in 2015! 

Beginning January 2, 2015, The Energy Network will introduce three new ways that Co-op Matching Funds can help grow your business. Through Contractor Co-op, you will have the option to use Matching Funds for several project types, including: 

  1. Training and Certifications
  2. Equipment Purchases
  3. Equipment Calibration
  4. Marketing

Through the Contractor Co-op program, Participating Contractors will receive up to $5,000 in Matching Funds to use for any combination of the above. 

How will Contractor Co-op work?
Similar to the existing Co-op Marketing process, all project submissions will require pre-approval. Contractors will continue to use The Energy Network's Contractor Portal to submit projects.

Once the project is completed, contractors will simply need to submit an invoice through the Portal to receive their 50% matching reimbursement, up to $5,000. For example, if you spend a total of $2,500 on new equipment, you will be reimbursed $1,250. If you spend $12,000, you will be reimbursed $5,000 (the maximum).
Why are these changes happening?

Due to the positive Co-op Marketing feedback we received for the 2013-2014 cycle, The Energy Network wanted to find a way to continue the program in 2015. Feedback from contractors consistently indicated a need for Home Upgrade equipment and training. We heard you and created the Contractor Co-op program as a result of your feedback.

Ready to participate?
Stay tuned! The existing Co-op Marketing structure will continue to operate until December 31, 2014. Full details on the eligible equipment and training for Contractor Co-op will be distributed on January 2, 2015, along with an updated Participation Agreement for contractors to sign.
