Connie Wilbert, Wyoming Home Performance program manager will introduce Wyoming Energy Council’s efforts to create a growing network of certified contractors and connect them with homeowners taking advantage of the Wyoming Home Performance with ENERGY STAR program. This is an excellent opportunity for local contractors to distinguish themselves from their competitors in the market. To participate in Home Performance with ENERGY STAR, a contractor firm must become a Wyoming Energy Council Preferred Contractor. www.wyominghomeperformance.com
