We’ve had calls from several dozen contractors over the past two months wanting to learn how we do what we do. While we’re expanding to new locations and will be offering fanchises soon, I can in good conscience point all contractors (and utility DSM/efficiency managers, policy makers, and anyone interested in the way of the future) to an ACI conference. ACI hosts what without a doubt is the single best gathering of minds and experience in existing home energy-efficiency retrofits.
Maryland–you’ve got an event next week. Canada, coming soon. They have regional events around the county, and their next national conference–a real eye-opener–is in April 2010 in Austin, TX.
I don’t mind sharing this “secret” even with our competitors. Frankly, the more contractors that learn how to do things the right way, the better off we all are. [And we’ve got a head start, anyway 😉 ]
