The decision to participate in residential energy programs comes with many responsibilities. An individual or company choosing to participate will need to fill several roles depending on the type and level of participation. The REMCheck system has been designed and built to support a collaborative environment. Our members provide services and programs to each other and choose to participate at the level that works for them. Whether you provide compliance, marketing, certification, rebate or quality assurance programs, provide energy testing and verification services, or provide support and oversight for programs and services, there is a place for your talents.
When you are setting up your organization in the system, the list of roles may seem daunting. Large companies may have multiple people filling the same role, whereas small companies or the one-man-show may have single individuals filling multiple roles. An individual may fill a role, or multiple roles, for multiple organizations. This document serves to define and clarify each of these roles and the unique responsibilities they have.
