Join Energy Trust of Oregon for this webinar to learn how to help your clients save on energy costs by providing energy-efficient and renewable energy solutions to homebuyers and sellers. This 1-hr class provides brokers with basic understanding of what energy efficiency and high performance means in today’s building industry by examining the leading energy label, EPS (Energy Performance Score), and other Energy Trust of Oregon resources that are available to brokers and consumers in the region. Attendees will also learn about solar PV options and how to help your clients navigate available programs for these renewable energy systems.

According to the 2017 NAR Sustainability Report, 71% of realtors say it's valuable to promote energy efficiency in home listings. The report demonstrates a growing consumer interest and demand for energy efficient properties which is driving a dialogue between agents and homebuyers and sellers. Are you prepared to meet this increasing client demand and communicate the features and benefits of "high performance"?
