    A Train-The-Trainers REAP workshop

    usda.jpgThere have been some recent updates to Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) policies and regulations, and expected changes to the grant package and materials, too, within the next few months. It can be difficult for contractors, especially newer to the REAP application process, to keep track of all of the requirements and information they and their clients need to submit to complete a successful REAP grant application, and to understand who amongst their clients would “qualify” for the REAP grant. In a “train-the-trainers” workshop, we would provide basic, outlined instructions as a “101” resource for these contractors. We foresee this making communication between their companies and our program much more efficient down the road. Generating more awareness amongst contractors/utilities about the REAP program and our program services, which will (hopefully) create a stronger referral pipeline, pushing their clients (that qualify) to REAP grant representatives.

    This webinar will be presented by Nicholas Cusick, Pierce Conservation District, Joe Crumbley and Carrie Brausieck, Snohomish Conservation District, and Ty Chang, Ecotech Solar. This webinar is hosted by Solar Washington with additional support from the Washington Solar Energy Industries Association, Spark Northwest, Pierce Conservation District, the Snohomish Conservation District and EcoTech Solar.

    Note: Registrant contact information will be made available, upon request, to the additional organizers of this webinar listed above for the purpose of contacting you for future announcements/updates pertaining to the REAP program, among other things.
