Home Energy Raters Disclaimer

 

 

Individuals provided on this list are Home Energy Raters currently certified to submit associated documentation to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources in connection with the HERO Program.   Certification of the individuals on this list only designates that they have successfully completed training on how to properly submit correct and appropriate documentation to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources required under the HERO Program.  These individuals are private sector businesses, and are in no way affiliated with either the state of Louisiana or the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources.   Neither the state of Louisiana nor the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources accept responsibility for any contractual agreement entered into between the individuals provided on this list and  a homeowner, homebuilder, contractor, vendor, supplier, laborer, or any other person, company or group.  Neither the state of Louisiana nor the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources assume any responsibility for any failure on the part of the individuals provided on this list to perform their prescribed duties under the HERO Program with a homeowner, homebuilder, contractor, vendor, supplier, laborer, or any other person, company or group.   It is the responsibility of the individual home owner, or home builder to insure that the individuals on this list have submitted the appropriate documentation to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources in a timely manner.    

 

In order to meet the requirements of the HERO Program, and qualify the appropriate funds for the rated home, preliminary ratings must be submitted to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources by the energy rater within two weeks of the preliminary rating date.  Three weeks after the energy rater has conducted your preliminary rating, you can go to the following web site:

 http://sonris-www.dnr.state.la.us/www_root/sonris_portal_1.htm
and click on “Data Access”.  At the bottom of the page you will see a link to “HERO Application Status” where you can see if, and when the energy rater submitted your preliminary rating to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources.  The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources verifies the documentation submitted only by individuals on this list, assesses the appropriate rebate award associated with these submittals, and awards the cash rebate directly to the qualifying participants.   Individuals found to not be sending rating information to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources in an expeditious manner may be ultimately removed from this list.  The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources strongly advises contacting more than one energy rater from this list before deciding on one to perform your preliminary energy rating.  Once you choose an energy rater and have a preliminary rating submitted for your property under the HERO Program you must use the same energy rater to conduct the final rating on that property unless you first consult with the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources.   

 

All individuals who are certified to work within the HERO Program must carry and present a valid and current Rater ID Badge to the home owner or home builder while performing HERO related work on any residence.  HERO related work refers to consultation, software entry, and mechanical testing of the home.  The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources strongly recommends that you check the credentials of anyone representing themselves as a HERO certified home energy rater against the list of raters posted on this site at the time of your rating.  If you become aware of anyone presenting themselves as a HERO certified home energy rater without the proper credentials, do not provide them with any of your rating information and return to the list of HERO Program raters for the lasted posted directory.  The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources does not set the fee charged for a home energy rating.
