The Home Energy Solutions program is divided into three categories- Core Services, Income Eligible, and Home Performance with ENERGY STAR. All three Home Energy Solutions program begins with a free energy assessment of the home. The contractor will provide an energy audit of the home including energy-efficiency measures, energy savings, and qualifying incentives. Participants can apply for no-interest on-bill financing for rest amount that is not covered under rebates.
Core Services: Homeowners who participate in the CORE services have to pay $99 participant cost. They can also hire their own contractor to do major work.
Income Eligible: Participants with total family gross annual income lower than the State’s 60% income median qualify for the program. The program offers additional rebates up to no-cost energy saving services.
Home Performance with ENERGY STAR: This program takes a comprehensive, whole-house approach to energy efficiency in the home. The contractor will provide a custom proposal for improvement and information on financing. Residential customers who own a single family (1-4 unit) home are eligible for the program.
