Taitem was awarded a Sign of Sustainability Award from Sustainable Tompkins. Each year, Sustainable Tompkins recognizes innovations and initiatives related to sustainability with the Signs of Sustainability Awards. The tradition began in 2006 and has grown to honor dozens of Tompkins County businesses, people, governments, and organizations. Thank you Sustainable Tompkins!
Jim Holahan is now a Certified Home Energy Professional (HEP). The four HEP certifications–Energy Auditor, Retrofit Installer Technician, Crew Leader and Quality Control Inspector–demonstrate advanced competency through work experience prerequisites, as well as rigorous written and field exams. These are the only home performance certifications that are both supported by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Congratulations, Jim!
