Because of COVID-19, several motor service centers have informed us they will NOT allow visitors in their offices or shop-floor. We certainly understand. We do not want to inadvertently spread the virus from company to company as we conduct in-person onsite verifications or bring it home to our families.
As an alternative beginning April 2020 and possibly 2021, we will be conducting Green Motor Initiative (GMI) electronic onsite “remote-verifications” using current camera/voice technology (e.g. RingCentral a Zoom product), much like tele-medicine. Having a long history with our motor service center clients, many going back to 2002 and all of them over the last four years, we’re confident remote-verifications are an effective and safe alternative.
There are two instances where GMI remote-verification will not be used:
1) If a motor service center has had compliancy issues during recent evaluations and,
2) NO NEW motor service center clients are eligible. We must conduct an in-person verification for new motor service centers to participate in electric utility efficiency incentives.
EASA Accreditation onsite remote-audits are now allowed for Accreditation renewals. We'll post a blog covering the change soon. Until then go to our Webpage under Accreditation/Accreditation-location" for details.
