The WISE (Workforce Instructions for Standards and Efficiency) program is designed to help the homebuilding industry meet state-mandated energy efficiency standards for High Performance Attics (HPA) and High Performance Walls (HPW) through education and promoting the exchange of best practices for these construction techniques. WISE is funded by the California Energy Commission’s Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) program.
How does WISE help?
WISE offers building industry participants one on one training, industry educational events and extensive resource information on how to achieve HPA and HPW in residential new construction. The trainings are free of charge and can be tailored to a builder’s or subcontractor’s specific project or objective. In addition to in person trainings, the WISE website provides on demand video training, information from a variety of product manufacturers and research reports, giving access to high performance envelope construction techniques and best practices from industry experts.
