Puget Sound Energy Makes it Easier for Customers to Find Contractor Recommendations Online

BELLEVUE, Wash. (Dec. 13, 2012) – Puget Sound Energy residential customers in need of a contractor for energy efficiency and home improvement projects can now generate their own contractor referrals online at PSE.com/CAN through the energy company’s Contractor Alliance Network.

The online self-referral tool matches customers with local contractors who specialize in the following services: heating and cooling, solar, water heating, natural gas conversion, weatherization, windows, home performance evaluation, roofing and generators.

Once a customer submits project information, PSE automatically links independent pre-qualified Contractor Alliance Network (formerly the Contractor Referral Service) members who specialize in the requested service. Member contractors then contact customers directly to expedite scheduling an appointment to provide the customer with an estimate for their project.

PSE developed the free online service to take the time and hassle out of finding the right contractor. Each member contractor must adhere to a comprehensive pre-screening and application process, and once accepted, each contractor is continuously evaluated by PSE to ensure the highest quality of work and customer service are provided to our valued customers.

Currently, there are more than 100 member contractors covering PSE’s service area. All Contractor Alliance Network members are: licensed, bonded and insured; knowledgeable about current energy codes, high efficiency equipment and product applications; and continually trained and educated to keep up with the latest technology.

PSE’s Contractor Alliance Network is available to residential customers living in a single-family property or attached housing with four or less individually-metered units. Visit PSE.com/CAN to create a self-referral.
