Great return for the tax payers and their kids and grand-kids that will have to pay the bill. DPT

Unions and the program management companies. Program sounds good but is targeted to community activists groups and larger union contractors only. To get certified you have to travel to national training sites thousands of miles away, pay over $2,000 to get “certified” and spend over $4,000 to $5,000 minimum to get the required testing equipment. Then pay Davis-Bacon wages to do the energy audits with the “hope” of being awarded the job. DPT
