Chapter Highlight: From the Efficiency First North Carolina TeamSubmitted Mon Jul 14 2014 16:51:48 GMT-0400 (EDT)
Since becoming the North Carolina chapter for Efficiency First in June, the North Carolina Building Performance Association (NCBPA) has continued its growth to include 47 member companies representing around 500 employees across the state in just five months of existence.The association has identified many opportunities to represent, promote and protect the state’s building performance industry and is rolling out its first member services and programs this August.
New programs include a statewide accredited RESNET Rating Providership that will provide quality assurance, technical support and marketing services to the state’s 112 plus home energy raters. NCBPA is also taking on advocacy and lobbying for the industry by launching its first Call to Action campaigns in response to pending legislation that would roll back the current 2012 residential energy code to 2009 levels.
This fall, NCBPA will launch www.HomeEnergyNC.org to consolidate the state’s many home energy resources into one location for homeowners and lobby for licensure of the association’s primary trades including home energy raters, energy auditors, crawlspace contractors and others. More information on NCBPA and its members can be found at www.BuildingNC.org.
