Focus on Energy aims to expand reach to rural territories with historically lower program participation by providing Trade Ally trainings and education sessions on heat pump technologies. Builders were continuously engaged to improve awareness of enhanced incentive opportunities and benefits of heat pump technologies. Heat pumps were most strongly promoted in areas served by propane and promoted as an alternative to traditional heating equipment options.
At the pilot's conclusion, it was determined heat pump technologies will continue to be promoted within the existing programs and an incentive tier would be established for Zero Energy Ready Homes.
