Building Operation Eligibility


If you are a contractor, a representative of the SMECO customer must provide a letter, on company letterhead, stating that you are assigned to work at the customer’s facility and that the SMECO customer supports your participation in the Building Operator Education Program.


Eligibility for a financial incentive is based on work experience and education, as well as completion of courses, examinations, and on-the-job projects. To participate in the program and receive a financial incentive, you must be:

  • Assigned to work at a commercial and/or industrial facility within the SMECO service territory and be present at that facility for at least 50% of your working hours.
  • In a position of responsibility for the facility’s energy management or have the potential to influence the building’s energy performance.
