Residential and small commercial HVAC contractors that service customers served by SWEPCO may apply to participate. Contractors that wish to participate enter into a contractor partnering agreement that specifies the program requirements. Contractors are trained on the A/C tune-up process and provided incentives and discounts on the cost of field equipment designed to diagnose and quantify energy savings opportunities.
