Both the DOE and EPA have new free contractor programs and certifications you need to know about. 

The EPA WaterSense program strives to get homes built with the new WaterSense Home certification label. WaterSense seeks to protect the future of our nation's water supply by offering people a simple way to use less water with water-efficient products, new homes, and services. Upgrading to more efficient WaterSense labeled products can help us to save billions of gallons of water in the country every year. Something as simple as twisting on a WaterSense labeled aerator and upgrading to a WaterSense labeled faucet could save a household 11,000 gallons over the life of the faucet. Learn more about how you can save water and help WaterSense preserve and protect our nation’s water resources.
 
WaterSense brings together a variety of stakeholders to:

  • Promote the value of water efficiency.
  • Provide consumers with easy ways to save water, as both a label for products and an information resource to help people use water more efficiently.
  • Encourage innovation in manufacturing.
  • Decrease water use and reduce strain on water resources and infrastructure.
The program seeks to help consumers make smart water choices that save money and maintain high environmental standards without compromising performance. Products and services that have earned the WaterSense label have been certified to be at least 20 percent more efficient without sacrificing performance.
Another new DOE contractor training and certification program called Challenge Home- is a step up in energy efficiency from EnergyStar by creating Zero Net-Energy Ready Homes. Learn about the basic criteria to create a certified Challenge Home, how this program relates to EnergyStar, and how you can become a Challenge Home contractor.
