Dear Sir or Madam:

Adrian Starr has been a MICROPAS software user since 1992.  In 1999 I became the MICROPAS technical support representative, so I have over 10 years of interactions with Adrian.  He’s always positive, enthusiastic, and energetic, which really says something because he’s calling with an issue having to do with modeling a building or with building department staff.  He’s always done his research before calling.  This is noteworthy because of the number of people who call at the first sign of a problem, which I find passive and lazy.  So Adrian stands out as a person with a good work ethic.

I’ve seen Adrian expand his business by becoming a HERS Rater, getting involved in the New Solar Homes Partnership program, and becoming a Certified Energy Plans Examiner.  This shows that he is interested in providing service to his customers.  Because of his attitude and his business ethics, I have comfortably recommended him on several occasions.  When I recieve a call from someone who wants energy compliance (which I can do) but they want to pursue solar incentives, I send them to Adrian because if I were them, I’d want one person to take me through the process from the application to the last inspection, particularly since thousands of dollars are at stake.

I’ve seen nothing in 10 years that would sway me from assuring anyone wishing to do business with Adrian Starr that he is an outstanding businessman.

Feel free to contact me personally, if you wish, at 800-755-5908 x2.

Subject: Recommendation for Adrian Starr, 5-Starr Energy

I have known Adrian Starr professionally for a number of years.  In our capacity as California Home Energy Efficiency Rating Services trainers and quality assurance, we have contact with Adrian numerous times per year.

Adrian stands out from the crowd.  He is always professional, quick to go beyond the call of duty, finds new ways to grow his business, and a pleasure to work with.  I believe that Adrian has a very bright professional future.

To Whom It Concerns:

The California Association of Building Energy Consultants (CABEC) exists to further technical expertise and ethics through certification; to foster professional development through training, information, and peer exchange/networking; to represent and enhance the stature of its members to the California Energy Commission and other political entities; and to encourage energy efficiency and regulatory compliance throughout the energy consulting industry.

CABEC certifies energy consultants as Certified Energy Plans Examiners (CEPEs) and Certified Energy Analysts (CEAs).  The highest level of certification available is the Certified Energy Analyst certification.  This requires that an energy consultant distinguish him/herself at a high level of performance, including an annual requirement of several hours of Continuing Education.

Adrian Starr has been a member of CABEC in good standing since April of 2007, and has earned both the CEPE and CEA certifications.  In addition, he has consistently demonstrated his willingness to train and educated others.

Please feel free to call me if you need further expansion on CABEC’s relationship with Mr. Starr.  I will be happy to provide any additional information you require.
