How Community Collaboration
The near-term goal of Project Retrofit is to stimulate demand for energy efficient retrofit work while augmenting the
supply of energy efficient retrofit competent workers in the Pioneer Valley. The long-term goal is to create and perfect a
collaborative community model and make available for use in other regions.

educational programs and bridge the communication gap between existing contractors and the newly trained workforce.
