Home Star Update & Program Operation

MARCH 19, 2010 - 8:30 AM ET

Online Webinar

Heard about Home Star but need more information to know how your business can really be involved? Then join us for our webinar to discuss the details of the draft Home Star legislation and specifically how the program operates – how the money flows, the role of the contractor, the Quality Assurance system, the role of the rebate aggregator, and more. Industry experts will present our webinar and answer your questions. The Home Star program is not yet law; if passed, it would create the first ever nation-wide rebate program for energy efficiency work and would direct billions of dollars to be spent in its first year alone! A draft bill was released recently, the Senate held a hearing on Home Star, and the House has scheduled a hearing, too.
