PEERS, the Program for Energy Efficiency Through Responsible Stimulus, is a grassroots initiative that seeks matching government funds for existing state and utility energy efficiency rebates.
We`re asking the government to direct $16 Billion of the ARRA stimulus act`s nearly $800 Billion to support energy efficiency retrofit programs.
These additional rebates will help business owners retrofit their facilities with energy efficient equipment that will lower utility bills and reduce the cost of doing business.
The PEERS alliance needs your support. We`re competing for stimulus dollars against industries with far deeper lobbying pockets than us. Our success depends on industry-wide cooperation.
The PEERS initiative provides a proven conduit for stimulus dollars to enter the economy, produce measurable results, create jobs, reduce pollution and increase our nation`s energy independence.

The Energy Efficiency Industry
PEERS is an opportunity for our industry to take a leadership role in the nation`s economic recovery. The PEERS initiative has the potential to generate thousands of new energy efficient projects across the country, each of which brings tangible benefits for business owners, the economy and the public.
Tell Your Friends
If you`re part of the energy efficiency industry, we need you to talk to your friends and contacts about PEERS. The alliance needs their support too.
Every building in all across the United States could use some retrofitting [...] Doing that one thing could put hundreds of thousands of people back to work.
It is so clearly actionable to amplify these programs that I believe it will happen, but only if we join together.
In these difficult times there are so many qualified people out of work. The stimulus funding that PEERS is asking for would create a huge influx in energy saving jobs.
The PEERS initiative is a fresh approach and illustrates how partnerships between private industry, government and association can exist to benefit everyone.
PEERS is unique in its grassroots approach to stimulate our economy and save jobs while reducing our carbon emissions.
PEERS will be good for businesses, good for the economy and good for the environment. It`s a great way to get the most bang for our country`s stimulus buck.
