Arizona Contractor Roundtable
25 January 2024
10 AM - 1 PM
The Governor’s Office of Resiliency invites Arizona contractors to an in-person roundtable on Thursday, January 25, 2024, from 10 am to 1 pm at the State Executive Tower, to discuss the development and implementation of the Homeowners Manage Energy Savings Rebate (HOMES) and the Home Electrification and Appliance Rebate (HEAR) programs. These programs, funded by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and administered by the U.S. Department of Energy, will assist Arizonians, particularly low and moderate-income Arizonians, in improving the energy efficiency of their residence, reducing indoor and outdoor air pollution and saving money on energy bills.
It is expected that HOMES & HEAR will produce an unprecedented amount of work throughout the state and create opportunities for home performance and HVAC contractors to install efficient, clean energy equipment in underserved and underrepresented communities. This roundtable allows you to provide input on streamlining the pre- and post-work processes, making it a successful experience for all parties involved. The session will also solicit feedback from contractors on the overall energy efficiency market in Arizona – including key challenges and opportunities for leveraging federal investments and tax credits – to inform the U.S. Department of Energy on the state of the industry and inform federal support for workforce and energy efficiency programs.
In advance of the roundtable, the Office of Resiliency will share a draft Request for Proposals (RFP) with expected attendees to review and to come prepared to discuss. We intend to issue the RFP and start receiving bids from potential program implementers in February.
Please RSVP to Ann D’Amico (Adamico@az.gov) no later than Tuesday, January 23, 2024.
If you are unable to attend in person, please join us virtually here. If you have any questions about the event or the programs, don’t hesitate to contact Rebates Program Manager Ken Owens, Jr. at 480.489.9386 or KOwens@az.gov.
