The goal of the New York Contractor Exchange is to help contractors grow their business in the emerging home performance and clean energy markets. The Exchange will also highlight the opportunities available through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® program.

Sessions feature interactive panel presentations with industry experts and contractors who have successfully incorporated energy efficiency and renewable energy initiatives into traditional contracting business models. Contractors and other building trades participants can learn business skills to help them develop, build, and grow their business, and exchange information and experiences in the clean energy field.

Who should attend

Owners, managers, and contractors of companies focused on residential and small commercial remodeling and replacement. This workshop is best suited for businesses and contractors with some experience in home improvement and energy efficiency work.

Why is Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® Important to You?

Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® employs a 'house-as-a-system' philosophy to improving a home's efficiency by up to 40 percent. Home Performance with ENERGY STAR® uses participating contractors accredited by BPI to deliver the next generation of energy-efficient services to one to four family homes. Participating contractors can provide New Yorkers with access to a free or reduced cost comprehensive home assessment, installation services, and low-interest financing. Contractors can also take advantage of training.*
