Amanda Evans, director of the New Mexico Energy$mart Academy, is using the SWS as part of an accredited training program for weatherization work.

"We like to put students in pairs and give them something they think they know how to do and ask them to write all the steps down in as much detail as they can," Evans said. "Once they've done that, we'll pull up the SWS, and they go through and see what they got and how many they missed. It's a tool to show them how their memory isn't as effective as using something that is clearly written out. We talk about how even pilots and doctors have checklists for their work."

Austin Energy is looking to revamp its multifamily rebate program, and for this municipal utility, the timing of the development of the SWS couldn't have been better.

According to Jaime Gomez, coordinator for Austin Energy's multifamily rebate program, his team was recently reviewing old notebooks from when the program was first developed. They discovered that all of the forms and information had not changed since the early 1980s.

"We realized that everyone has caught up to what we are doing; we decided the time had come to change up our program," Gomez said. "We've come up with a new way of thinking about how we are doing things. We decided to include a stringent handbook with the use of registered contractors. Along with that handbook, we need technical specifications, and it was going to be really difficult for us to come up with all of that on our own. This cut our workload considerably maybe by more than half."
