    "Efficiency Maine is a scam"

    A couple of weeks ago I had an insulation company finish spray insulating the entire house to be more energy efficient. This was a six year process due to financial constraints. I sent in the work sheets and payment receipts of the work done to receive a rebate from Efficiency Maine. A few days later, I got an email from Efficiency Maine to call them regarding my rebate. I called the office and spoke to Julie. She went on to say my first job done by Home Snuggers was past the time allotted for the rebate. It was never made clear to me that there was a time limit as long as there was documentation of the work done. I asked about the last spray foaming rebate which was done a few weeks ago. She told me I was all set on that one. All I needed was to have the insulating company that did the job sign off and that could be done over the phone. She told me to have the insulating company call her which I did. While talking to the person in the office of the spray foam insulation company she stated to me, ''Good luck with Efficiency Maine. We dealt with them in the past and did not have good luck with them."
    Julie from Efficiency Maine called me today. She said the insulation company called and signed off on the job. Now she wants a BPI test to be done in order to get the rebate! She could have told me this last week when I spoke to her? This added cost will be out of my pocket! The spray foam company was right. Efficiency Maine will keep you jumping through their bureaucratic hoops until you finally give up on getting any rebate. They sound great but don't trust them!

    So, Efficiency Maine posts on its website there is a two business day wait for loan approval status. We applied for a new furnace loan as our furnace suddenly needed to be replaced. It's now day six (6) waiting for a response and day 12 with no heat in our home. Four phone calls requesting to speak with someone on the loan application department have gone un-returned. The same holds true with an email. Spoke with Brenda , a very nice person who seemingly takes initial calls and sends along messages to the powers that be. The powers that be at Efficiency Maine have yet to respond to us. Brenda twice assured me that "someone will call you back" - sorry Brenda, it hasn't happened. Friday, Brenda gave me a phone number of what I think may be the loan agency. I called and spoke to a nice person named Amy. Amy told me at 4:15 p.m. that the loan center was closed but she would pass along the message with an "emergency" request on it and the good news that the loan servicing department works on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Amy assured me somone would call me today (Saturday)! "Great, I thought, there seems to be someone at this new number that actually knows what he/she is actually doing! " Silly me.... Surprise! No one called me back from the new number location. In the meantime it's now day 14 with no heat. Not a great thing in January in Maine.... Inept and indifference would be much too kindly words to describe Efficiency Maine and its loan application process and total unresponsiveness. It's sad and disappointing that our taxpayer subsidizes this "service." I wold be fired if I treated customers at my place of work for such shoddy treatment. You will rue the day if you attempt to do business with Inefficiency Maine....
