Fresh Start: Streamline Energy in Your Home

It finally feels like winter in Minnesota which has made me think about all the energy upgrades that could be done to our home. Fortunately, there is a program in Minneapolis that helps homeowners streamline energy use in their homes.

Community Energy Services can make saving energy in your Minneapolis home easier.

"Participants in Community Energy Services attend a community presentation on energy efficiency, where they can sign up for a customized home visit with two energy experts. These energy experts install a variety of energy saving materials - like compact fluorescent light bulbs, high efficiency showerheads and pipe wrap - as well as perform building performance tests. Community Energy Services provides a list of qualified contractors to complete recommended upgrades and access to 0% financing and utility rebates. Participants also receive a year of customized energy reporting."

If you live in Minneapolis in an owner occupied single family home, duplex, triplex, or four-plex you qualify for this program.
