As an electricity provider, it might seem counterintuitive that we encourage members to use less of the service we provide. However, as a local cooperative, we strive to improve our members’ quality of life in several ways. Providing innovative energy programs — thus, keeping money in your pocket — is one of the ways we are here to serve you.
A home energy efficiency expert from Precise Building Performance conducts a whole-home energy audit. The audit tests your home’s ability to seal in heat and air, checks for potential duct leakage and ensures an adequate amount of attic insulation. Members will receive a detailed report on site along with information on steps they can take to expand their home’s efficiency and savings.
The Home Energy Efficiency Program is available only to residential members living in single-family houses and larger. However, members living in mobile homes are welcome to enroll and will receive helpful resources including specific ways they can cut energy costs.
