First, we’ll look at how you’re using energy now

Understanding exactly how you’re using electricity can help you identify areas to save. We’ll work with you to spot key areas for savings around your home, looking at:

  • What light bulbs you use
  • How old your appliances are
  • Whether drafts are coming in through your doors, windows, attic or basement.
You could qualify for FREE energy-efficiency upgrades

Once we have found your best energy-saving opportunities, we’ll recommend and install the upgrades your home qualifies for. These could include:

  • Energy-efficient appliances
  • Energy-saving light bulbs
  • Low-flow showerheads
  • Faucet aerators
  • Programmable thermostats
  • Power bars
  • Home insulation and draft proofing.

We’ll also show you more low-cost ways to save

Saving energy is a reliable way to cut down on your household costs. After we assess your home’s energy efficiency, we’ll show you other cost-effective ways to save – and how to get the most from your new upgrades.
