Are you ready to update your home or business to be more energy efficient or to produce renewable energy onsite? One of the first steps is to find a qualified contractor for your project. Energy Trust recently redesigned its online Find a Trade Ally Contractor tool to make it easier to connect with contractors in your area.

Trade Ally Network

Energy Trust works with a network of trade ally contractors and other professionals who design and install energy-saving improvements and renewable power systems. Licensed and insured trade allies are trained to meet Energy Trust standards for cash incentives. They also help homeowners and businesses apply for Energy Trust incentives.

Find a contractor to get started

New market research with residential and business customers helped identify ways to simplify the search functionality of the Find a Trade Ally Contractor tool and make it easier for customers to find the right trade ally for the job.

New features include:

  • A more intuitive search box to look for contractors by services they provide
  • A more visible way to search for contractors by company name
  • More options for filtering results by city, Energy Trust star rating and certifications
  • Easier access to the “make a list” feature, which lets customers select an unlimited number of contractors and export the list to a printable PDF
  • From a list of results, customers will have easy access to important company details and contact information, as well as the ability to find information about certifications and additional services
  • Clearer explanations of what a trade ally is, what Energy Trust star ratings mean and the value of our Trade Ally Network of contractors
