Priority Energy is an Accredited RESNET Rating Provider
What is a Rating Provider?
A Rating Provider is a Home Energy Rater’s (HERS) software provider, RESNET liaison, and quality assurance partner. Certified HERS Raters must join a Rating Providership to obtain the software license (we support REMRate and Ekotrope) they will need to measure energy use and calculate a HERS Index. The Rating Provider is responsible for submitting its members’ HERS and Energy Star - rated home information to RESNET and the EPA. Rating Providers must also monitor the quality, accuracy and consistency of energy ratings and uphold the policies of the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET).
How do I Select a Rating Provider?
HERS Raters will want to select a Rating Provider with whom they can form a long term working relationship. The Provider should be responsive and able to answer questions and register submitted ratings on a timely basis. It is important to work with a Provider who is ethical, and has a good relationship with RESNET. Strong communication, support and mutual respect are keys to a Provider relationship that will help grow your business.
