We will schedule a date with you for an assessor to visit your home. The assessor will look at some of your appliances and see if they qualify to be replaced under the checklist criteria. Some of your old appliances could be replaced for free with a new refrigerator, freezer, window air conditioner, and/or dehumidifier.

You may feel uncomfortable with having someone visiting your home during the COVID-19 pandemic. Rest assured that all pandemic safety guidelines and practices will be followed. Caleb Keeshig will also accompany the assessor.

On the day of the energy assessment, you will receive free LED Light Bulbs, a smart power bar and an outdoor timer.

This program will not assess roofs, windows and doors, but structural components like these will be noted for future initiatives.

This program is completely free. There are no costs to the homeowner of any kind.

This is a great opportunity to start replacing old appliances, save on electricity costs and find ways to make your home more energy efficient.

The deadline to apply is June 4th, 2021.
