DOE ZERH Webinar – QMS

A recording of the webinar will be available soon on the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home Resources website,  where you will also find recordings of past technical training webinars and presentations.

If you are building a project or starting the design process you should be asking a lot of questions of your General Contractor and Design Professional.  If they can not demonstrate multiple projects and a track record of energy efficent buildings certified by a RESNET Rater, then you need to find another General Contractor and or Design Professional
