Saving Energy Can Save You Money

Improving the energy efficiency of a home can significantly reduce energy bills. Not everyone, however, can afford to make these updates. That is why we offer the Energy Savings Assistance Program. It provides qualified customers with energy-saving improvements at no charge.

Step 3

Set Up a Home Assessment

Once your application has been reviewed, an energy specialist will contact you to schedule an assessment of your home. During the visit, the specialist will determine if your home qualifies for the program and, if so, the improvements to be made. At this time, you will also need to provide proof of household income.

If you would like to speak to a program specialist, please call 1-800-989-9744.
