Who Recognizes BPI Standards?

BPI standards are recognized nationally across the US as well as internationally. As such, an increasing number of home energy professionals are opting to get their BPI certification in addition to their other qualifications.


Many utility programs now require that consumers have audits and retrofit work (conforming to BPI standards) done by BPI certified analysts and contractors in order to qualify for their incentive or rebate programs. Other local utilities are offering discounts or reimbursement for energy audits and retrofits performed by BPI certified auditors and accredited contractors.


Furthermore, a growing number of communities (Austin, TX and Montgomery County, MD for example) now require home energy audits by a certified energy auditor on all homes at the time of sale. In regard to BPI standards, this represents a tremendous opportunity for those analysts who are qualified to perform these audits.
