Florida Energy Efficiency Loan (FEEL) Program
The FEEL program is seeking licensed Florida building professionals capable of rapidly responding to customer referrals generated through a $5 million energy efficiency finance program to provide residential property improvement services in Central Florida. Launching early in the second quarter of 2013, the University of Florida, in partnership with FAIRWINDS Credit Union, will be leveraging our building science, consumer engagement, and financial management offerings and experience to help homeowners FEEL good about their home energy lifestyle.
Qualified contractors displaying a high quality of work, a commitment to customer service, financial stability, and personal integrity may become FEEL Program “Participating Independent Contractors” through the process detailed in a free, interactive workshop. Ample time will be available for dialogue and contractor Q&A. Workshops will be scheduled for Central Florida in early to mid 2013.
The FEEL program has grown out of the Osceola Energy Initiative (www.osceola.org/go/energy) and is based upon work supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) Office of Energy under Award Number DE-E0000800.
