2016-17 Annual Report: Saving starts at home

Today, we’re kicking off a series of blog posts which pull highlights from our Fiscal Year 2016-17 Annual Report. This report highlights many of our accomplishments related to our customers, our community and our employees. Check out our first highlight below and look for new highlights from our report in the weeks to come.

Homeowners, like business owners, see the value short-term investments can have in creating long-term energy savings. In 2016, heating and cooling system upgrades again were the most preferred solution for savings. However, we introduced new programs that offer small tools to help homeowners, as well as apartment owners and residents, save big.

Our Home Energy Assessment Program helps homeowners stretch their dollars through free, do-it-yourself energy-saving products. Customers can request a home energy assessment kit, which includes LED lights, water-efficient shower heads and faucet aerators. If homeowners aren’t keen on the DIY idea, they can have one of our energy experts visit their home to evaluate their home’s energy use, recommend cost-effective energy upgrades, and install energy-saving tools.

Another new program, the Multi-Family Energy Efficiency Program, allows owners of multi-family properties to help renters save dollars each month through the installation of LED lights and water-saving products in apartments.
