Residential Clean Energy Financing Program Consultants

Grantees and program partners can take advantage of consultants to advise them on certain areas of the energy efficiency and renewable energy financing program design process.

The extent of consultant involvement usually depends on the program’s budget. Consultants’ fees can be covered in the grant budget. (See Residential Clean Energy Finance Program Staffing for a discussion of roles).

In such programs, consultants are most effectively used in areas that include assistance in energy efficiency and renewable energy program design, all areas of financial design and document drafting and execution, as well as marketing.
