We are a Resource for the Industry


We think one of the primary roles of a trade organization is to be a source of information. Our newsletters and blogs are intended to provide updates and insights into the energy efficiency industry in California. We try and touch on topics that are relevant and have value to our members. But being a resource for the industry doesn’t end there. Here are some of other ways that we are a resource.

Contractor’s Calendar

All over California and online, there are free and low-cost training and events specifically geared to the building performance and energy efficiency industry. You probably get updates on these from many different sources, but we have compiled them all in one place for easy reference. Check out the contractors’ calendar, and let us know if something is missing or if you’d like to add your event.

Virtual California Chapter Meetings

We are excited to provide this online meeting the first Wednesday of every month, for home performance contractors. This meeting is open to everyone and we encourage you to participate and invite others you think could benefit. This conversation is intended to provide contractors with information and to have an open conversation. In other words, this meeting is not focused on utility programs, rather what is going on in the home performance and energy efficiency industry. For more information about how to join this meeting click here!

In Person Contractor Meetings

Technology is great, but it's always nice to connect in person. We switch up the locations and there is always food and drinks. Come share your experiences with like-minded individuals. EFCA wants to listen to your concerns and let you know more about who we are and how we can help you. You're important to us and this industry. Keep an eye out for upcoming meeting dates and locations in our monthly newsletter! Are you a subscriber?

Ask Us Your Questions

Can’t find the answer you need in the Industry library? Have a specific business problem that’s keeping you up at night? Send us an email or pick up the phone. Between staff, the board, and our industry connections we have years of experience in building science and running a contractor business. If we don’t have a good answer for you, we might be able to put you in touch with someone who does. Just ask!
