*A rater is a qualified professional who assesses the energy efficiency of your home but does not do the actual upgrades. Some participating contractors work in tandem with raters, while others do the assessments themselves. Sometimes a customer will hire a rater for a home assessment and then ask several participating contractors to bid on the work.
